The Rapoport Center is currently soliciting papers for its Working Paper Series (WPS). We encourage submissions from scholars of all disciplines as well as from activists and advocates. At present, we are particularly interested in papers in line with the Rapoport Center’s current thematic focus on the future of work.
This interdisciplinary writing competition on international human rights and gender awards a $1,250 prize. It honors the work of Audre Rapoport, who advocated for women in the United States and internationally, particularly on issues of reproductive health.
The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, housed at the University of Texas at Austin School of Law, is seeking a rising 2L or 3L law student from any U.S. law school to support the Center’s new reproductive justice project at the intersection of criminal law and reproductive rights. The project aims to ensure quality legal resources for people criminally charged or investigated in Texas based on pregnancy outcomes. The Reproductive Justice Legal Fellow will work under the direction of reproductive rights attorney Blake Rocap and alongside Rapoport Center faculty, staff, and students.
This innovative concentration provides students with a robust, critical, and comparative foundation in both human rights and constitutional law.
