The Robert L. Bernstein Fellowship in International Human Rights enables an NYU Law School graduate to devote a year to full-time human rights work at Human Rights in China (HRIC). HRIC is a Chinese non-governmental organization (NGO) founded in March 1989 by overseas Chinese students and scientists. HRIC actively engages in case and policy advocacy, media and press work, and capacity building. Through its original publications and extensive translation work, HRIC provides bridges and uncensored platforms for diverse Chinese voices.
The Robert L. Bernstein Fellow will work full-time for one year at HRIC’s offices in New York. The Fellow will work closely with HRIC lawyers and advocacy staff and contribute to HRIC’s interrelated advocacy, casework, research, and outreach. Projects may include preparing specific policy, case, and legal briefs and submissions to human rights mechanisms at the UN as well as contributions to other bilateral and multilateral fora; contributing to media and online advocacy work; and conducting research for and drafting publications and reports on current issues and legal developments relevant to human rights in China.
