Women and Law Program and Law Students for Reproductive Justice Collaboration

The LSRJ 2012-2013 Fellows

 

The Women and the Law Program is proud to serve as the academic home for the Law Students for Reproductive Justice Fellowship Program.

Reproductive Justice Fellows will be placed for each year at organizations dedicated to women’s health and reproductive justice in Washington, D.C.  Fellows are recent law school graduates selected through a highly competitive nationwide process. They demonstrate remarkable knowledge of and passion for reproductive justice. Fellows will assist with research, interpretation, and application of law to aid the placement organization’s litigation, publication and policy pursuits. 

To support the Reproductive Justice Fellows, the Washington College of Law will provide:

  • Access to WCL facilities and meeting spaces
  • Research support through access to the law library and research databases
  • Participation in events, conferences and lectures hosted by WCL

The Reproductive Justice Fellows will be available to the WCL community in several roles:

  • Panel speakers about current topics in reproductive health, rights and justice
  • Mentoring and networking with current law students
  • Participating in academic conferences

Law Students for Reproductive Justice trains and mobilizes law students and new lawyers across the country to foster legal expertise and support for the realization of reproductive justice.

As of August 22nd, 2012, the collaboration between the Women and the Law Program and LSRJ has officially been announced via this press release.

New Reproductive Justice Lawyering CLE Webinar Series

The Women and the Law Program (WILP) and Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) have created a brand new “Reproductive Justice Lawyering Webinar Series.” Part of the ongoing collaboration between the Women and Law Program and LSRJ, the purpose of this series is to allow practicing attorneys to engage with the legal implications of current reproductive justice issues while fulfilling their Continuing Legal Education requirements. We know that attorneys across the country are interested in these issues, yet may not practice specifically in this area of the law. By offering this webinar series, we hope to give attorneys the opportunity to learn about emerging issues and to facilitate a sense of community for those attorneys in more isolated areas.
