Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) is a student-led, student-driven national non-profit network of law students and lawyers committed to fostering the next wave of legal experts for the reproductive justice movement. The NYU chapter of LSRJ (then known as Law Students for Choice) was started in the 2004-2005 school year by five NYU law students who were dissatisfied by the lack of any student group at the law school solely committed to the preservation and defense of reproductive freedom in the United States and abroad.
The national organization and the NYU chapter changed the name to Law Students for Reproductive Justice in 2007. Reproductive justice connotes collective efforts to address and overcome the roots of reproductive oppression, while constructing legally tenable, realistically accessible avenues for informed, consensual, unobstructed decision making about education, sex, contraception, sterilization, abortion, procreation, birth, and parenting.
NYU LSRJ holds many events throughout the year, including:
- Speaker series about a variety of reproductive justice issues
- Careers in Choice brownbag lunches/networking opportunities
- Escorting at local Planned Parenthood clinicsl
- Condoms & Kisses, which offers safe sex supplies
- Events co-hosted with the Med Students for Choice from schools in New York City
- Annual Sex Toy Party, co-sponsored with OUTLaw
