Avon Global Center for Women and Justice at Cornell Law School

Clinical Projects

The Center faculty, staff and students work with judges, legal professionals governmental and nongovernmental organizations on selected in-depth projects that work toward improving access to justice for victims of gender-based violence in their respective countries.  A project may involve conducting fact-finding and writing a report, evaluating laws related to access to justice for victims of gender-based violence, or developing training materials.  Projects typically begin in January or August and are undertaken by teams of law students supervised by Cornell Law School faculty.  

The Center faculty also supervises students in the Global Gender Justice Clinic.  For more information on Global Gender Justice Clinic projects, click here.
