Reproductive Rights are Human Rights

Reproductive Rights Law and Justice Course Survey

Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) is a national nonprofit network of law students and lawyers who work to ensure that a new generation of advocates will be prepared to protect and expand reproductive rights as basic civil and human rights.

Recently, LSRJ published an assessment of the reproductive rights law within legal education. Inspired by the need to understand the bigger picture, they launched the LSRJ Course Survey in 2009 in order to collect information about reproductive rights law and justice course offerings at all ABA-approved law schools since LSRJ’s founding in 2003. In October 2010, LSRJ posted the completed survey of relevant course offerings at U.S. law schools during the last seven years. The findings include that only 18% of schools have offered a reproductive rights law course. Additional results and analysis, as well as a comprehensive list of existing courses, are available in the Course Survey below.
