Family, Gender, & Sexuality

Centers & Intellectual Life

NYU Law’s centers and student organizations highlight issues pertaining to family, gender, and sexuality through various events each year. Recent events have included the 21st annual Rose Sheinberg Lecture with Ai-Jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance; a conversation between Kenji Yoshino and Rachel Maddow on marriage equality and the Hollingsworth v. Perry case, and a screening of The Hunting Ground as part of the Forum on Law Culture & Society’s annual film festival.

The Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging’s mission is to advance interdisciplinary legal scholarship on diversity, inclusion, and belonging; support the Law School community as it strives to live up to those values; and share expertise with the broader world through targeted engagement with public and private institutions.

The Forum on Law, Culture & Society provides a unique, engaging, and entertaining experience for both a public and online audience by bringing together influential artists, government leaders, and public intellectuals in examining the big ideas of the day, including matters of law, justice, human rights, and civil society.
