Tulane Law School’s chapter of Law Students for Reproductive Justice has received the Student Policy Advocacy Award from the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights.
In announcing the award, the CRR cited several of the year-old student group’s projects, including its hosting of the 2013 LSRJ South Regional Conference, which brought together more than 80 advocates for reproductive rights, health and justice from five states to share their expertise.
“We at the Center for Reproductive Rights believe that reproductive rights policy advocacy, including the work happening on the Tulane campus, deserves to be recognized and encouraged,” CRR leaders said in a news release.
Tulane’s is among 100 chapters of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, which trains and mobilizes law students and new lawyers to work for reproductive rights.
