AU Law Students for Reproductive Justice
Law Students for Reproductive Justice (AU LSRJ) is committed to educating, organizing, and supporting law students to ensure that a new generation of lawyers will be prepared to successfully defend and expand reproductive rights and justice issues. As a local chapter of the national LSRJ organization, AU LSRJ also takes part in national and regional conferences on reproductive rights law and justice in an effort to create new opportunities to learn from top legal scholars and litigators who bring a reproductive justice lens to all areas of the law. Students also help organize events around campus to engage the WCL community and increase awareness of reproductive justice issues.
