As an Equal Justice Works fellow and staff attorney at NYLPI, Dave Palmer (’06) advocated for communities working to address contamination in schools, including sky-high levels of cancer-causing toxins.
In this morning's interview on WNYC, Dave noted that transparency around school contamination is still lacking.
“The central fight was always about how far the Department of Education was going to go to improve their controls and manage the monitoring,” he said.

Julian Bond’s life has always been, and will continue to serve as, an inspiration to those of us at CUNY Law. Mr. Bond saw issues around oppression and civil rights comprehensively. His broad commitment to social justice resonates with our school’s mission: to diversify the legal profession and to graduate public interest lawyers and public service lawyers. http://www1.cuny.edu/mu/law/2015/08/17/dean-michelle-anderson-reflects-on-julian-bonds-legacy/

CUNY Law is a different kind of law school, a place where students, professors, alumni, supporters, and staff work together for a shared purpose: law in the service of human needs. This work would not be possible without your vital support. Thank you for all you do to make CUNY Law an extraordinary place.

Professor Caitlin Borgmann contributed her expertise in reproductive rights law to a recent US News & World Report article about the new Arizona law that would require providers to inform patients that a drug treatment to end pregnancy can be reversed midway through. She asked, "What happens when a state is ideologically motivated and when they require what they claim is ideologically neutral information, but in fact where the science is doubtful?” http://www1.cuny.edu/mu/law/2015/04/06/prof-borgmann-comments-on-new-abortion-law-in-arizona/

In a VICE News article, Professor Robson cautioned about the application of state religious freedom laws, noting that what matters is how they will be enforced — including what counts as a "substantial burden" on a person or company's religious practices.
