The Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights at NYU School of Law is committed to the advancement of legal empowerment through innovative research, education, and advocacy. Legal Empowerment is a growing field of human rights practice dedicated to strengthening the capacity of affected communities to use the law to achieve justice. The Institute is thrilled to announce the Tuttleman Fellowship, a generous gift from the Tuttleman Foundation to deepen and expand our legal empowerment work.  The fellowship is for a one year period, with the possibility for extension to two. 

About the position

The inaugural Tuttleman Fellow will build upon the Bernstein Institute for Human Rights’ cutting-edge legal empowerment work, playing a central role in developing and consolidating an evidence base to demonstrate the effectiveness of legal empowerment in advancing human rights.
