  • Meet Team Hi Guys.
    Each year, Tarek Ismail, currently Senior Staff Attorney in the Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility (CLEAR) project but soon to be Professor and Co-Director of the Health Law Practice Clinic (!), gathers this 5K team in support of the Friends of UNRWA, a 501(c)(3) which supports the UN agency tasked with serving the needs of refugees in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the West Bank, and Gaza.

    Tarek does this every year to honor his father who grew up in a UNRWA camp - and the CUNY Law community turns out to support him.

    If you needed another reason #WhyCUNYLaw, I would add this to the list.

    Pictured are Tarek Ismail, CLEAR Staff Attorney Naz Ahmad, Prof John Whitlow (alum), Prof Cindy Soohoo, Prof Talia Peleg (alum), Prof Laura Mott (alum), Prof Brad Parker (lawyering adjunct & alum), Prof Donna Lee, CLEAR teaching alum Diala Shamas and Erin Tomlinson (alum & former adjunct with the Defenders Clinic), among others.

  • Professor Steve Zeidman of our Defender Clinic urges reform beyond legislation which only "makes a brutal, racist machine slightly less brutal." He calls for change to the New York City Criminal Court that has to change: "The court’s method, or lack thereof, of adjudicating cases has not changed since its current incarnation in 1962."

  • “As more high-profile black women like Abrams and Pressley opt for natural hairstyles, twists, braids, we may see a positive cultural shift that would impact how courts view these guidelines that seek to prevent discrimination based on hair,” says CUNY Law Professor Chaumtoli Huq.

    The big news in New York City is the NYC Commission On Human Rights release of new guidelines declaring that targeting people based on their hair or hairstyle, at work, school or in public spaces, will now be considered racial discrimination.

    We'd like to see this policy move on up to protect black people beyond NYC.

  • "When citizens of countries that outlaw surrogacy travel abroad to have a child with the help of a surrogate mother, there is no guarantee the child will be recognized as a citizen of the parents' home country."

    Professor Richard Storrow examines a variety of cases involving “stateless children” delivered via surrogacy in a fascinating look at the deeply held value that children should not be denied essential aspects of their identity.

  • "According to Prof. Zeidman’s reading of the state parole statute, commissioners should not dwell on the seriousness of the crime, which has already been considered by the sentencing judge; instead, he says, they should focus on subsequent choices and achievements in prison."

    Don't miss this new piece in The New Yorker exploring what should be a story of redemption and justice, but is instead an examination of how the lawless parole system continues to oppress people of color.

  • If you've met Professor Chaumtoli Huq, you know why the labor and union rights organizer spoke to ELLE about the need for reform in the garment industry - especially in Bangladesh.

    Bangladesh is a nation led by a woman prime minister and its economy is also largely reliant on women, but the average textiles worker -- like Bobita featured below, who sews 80 pockets a minute onto Zara jeans -- makes less than $100 a month, about one-quarter of the suggested living wage.

    You can join the labor revolution and fight for fair wages for women around the world - demand more from fast fashion.

  • Meet Raquel Gabriel, Director of our Law Library. In her free time, she can be found at bookstores, scouring the internet for news on the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, and spoiling her cats. Raquel is alternately amused and resigned to the fact she fills the stereotype of a "librarian,” but overall she’s rather proud to be one.

    Our Sorensen Center for International Peace and Justice delegation of 20 CUNY Law students is engaging with members of the faculty at the University of Havana, various legal organizations, and local community members. It is a fascinating, historic time to be in Cuba; the National Assembly just approved a revised draft of a new Constitution which will go to a referendum next month.

  • Professor Nermeen Arastu has been selected as a 2019-20 Bellow Scholar for her work entitled "Expanding the Scope of Medical Legal Collaborations," a project that examines the utility of forensic medical evaluations in the context of immigration proceedings.

    She hopes this work will inspire further interdisciplinary collaborations to strengthen critical legal arguments related to “persecution,” “hardship,” “discretion,” and “substantial harm” in immigrant defense.

    Congratulations, Nermeen! We are incredibly proud of this innovative and necessary work on behalf of immigrants.

  • I"t’s a weighty decision, but I’ve met hundreds of people who deserve it,” says Prof Steve Zeidman in the latest New York Times article on clemency.

    Congratulations to our Defender Clinic on three of their clients being granted clemency after serving decades in prison.

    And a big round of applause to two Immigrant and Non-Citizen Rights’ Clinic students externing at the Immigration Defense Project who were successful in providing legal support to one immigrant New Yorker who was granted a gubernatorial pardon. She has lived in the United States for decades, has contributed to the state of New York, and is now free to renew her green card for a chance to remain here with her family.

    2019 is already looking a little brighter.
