New York – The Sorensen Center for International Peace and Justice at the City University of New York School of Law has named six students in the inaugural class of Sorensen Center Fellows. The Fellowships aim to equip students with international experience and expertise to become leaders in the field.
The Sorensen Center for International Peace and Justice, named after Theodore C. Sorensen, was founded at CUNY School of Law in 2014.
The Sorensen Center trains social justice lawyers to work from the local to the global levels, protecting rights of those affected by instability, conflict, and repression; and advances scholarship, intellectual exchange, and advocacy for international peace and justice. The Sorensen Center Fellowships, established in 2015, were made possible by the Haywood Burns Fund, the Bernstein Fellowship Fund, and other generous gifts to the Sorensen Center.
CUNY School of Law is one of the nation’s premier public interest law schools. Its mission is to graduate outstanding public interest attorneys and to enhance the diversity of the legal profession.
