The NYU School of Law Fellowship at Human Rights Watch is a one-year fellowship open exclusively to 2018 J.D. graduates of New York University School of Law and recent J.D. graduates who would begin the fellowship immediately upon completion of a judicial clerkship. The Fellowship begins in September 2018 and fellows typically work full-time in Human Rights Watch’s New York or Washington, D.C. office. In some instances other locations may be considered.
Fellows monitor human rights developments in various countries, conduct on-site investigations, draft reports on human rights conditions, and engage in advocacy and media outreach aimed at publicizing and curtailing human rights violations.
For more information on the fellowship and the application process, please visit this page.
The fellowship will be covered during the International Post-Graduate Fellowships for JDs Information Session on September 11th, 1-2pm, in FH 214.
Param-Preet Singh, Associate Director of the International Justice Program at HRW, will be holding one-on-one counseling sessions regarding the fellowship on September 26th, 3-5pm, in the PILC Library. RSVP on CSM.
