The Center for Reproductive Rights is a global legal organization dedicated to advancing women's reproductive health, self-determination and dignity as basic human rights. We are the only global legal advocacy organization dedicated to reproductive rights, with expertise in both U.S. constitutional and international human rights law. Our groundbreaking cases before national courts, United Nations committees, and regional human rights bodies have expanded access to reproductive healthcare, including birth control, safe abortion, prenatal and obstetric care, and unbiased information. We influence the law outside the courtroom as well, documenting abuses, working with policymakers to promote progressive measures, and fostering legal scholarship and teaching on reproductive health and human rights.
In 1898, Washington College of Law became the first law school in the world founded by women - a time when women were generally excluded from the legal profession. Today, its program in lawyer training along with its commitment to human rights, WCL is deeply involved in discourse about governmental policymaking, social change, and rights in the polity. Moreover, the school has attracted outstanding visiting, distinguished and adjunct faculty members who play critical roles in public and private sector organizations. Our location in the nation's capital offers unparalleled externship opportunities with federal and local agencies, courts, and public interest organizations. The law school's diverse curriculum offers students a myriad of opportunities to pursue their own professional and academic goals. While assisting students in gaining cutting-edge legal knowledge and skills, the LL.M. Program encourages them to investigate the relevant history, political theory, and ethical questions relevant to their interests.
