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 (fomerly known as Law Students for Choice) began during the 2004-2005 school year by five NYU law students who were dissatisfied by the lack of a 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
- Film screenings and panels on reproductive justice topics
- Sex-Ed Trivia
- Events co-hosted with the LSRJ chapters throughout New York City
