Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights
The Gruber Program at the Law School consists of three core components: l) the Global Constitutionalism Seminar; 2) the Gruber Distinguished Lectures in Global Justice and Women's Rights; and 3) the Gruber Global Justice and Women's Rights Fellowships.
1. Global Constitutionalism Seminar
The Global Constitutionalism Seminar brings together a group of about fifteen Supreme Court and Constitutional Court judges from around the world. The group meets for four days in a seminar-style setting to consider topics of common interest. The Seminar has been heralded as perhaps the only forum where leading jurists can confidentially and freely discuss the most important legal issues of the day with leading academic lawyers. Topics considered at past meetings have included freedom of expression, international norms, and terrorism.
2. The Gruber Distinguished Lectures in Global Justice and Women's Rights
The Gruber Distinguished Lecture in Global Justice and the Gruber Distinguished Lecture in Women's Rights are separate signature lectures open to the entire Yale community and other interested groups and feature speakers whose exceptional achievements have served the causes of global justice and women's rights. The lectures are often enhanced by panels and conferences. In addition, the lecturers may spend time at Yale Law School teaching a class or engaging in a range of other community activities, such as Master's teas, faculty workshops and similar opportunities. We are pleased to welcome in 2012-2013 Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States) as the inaugural Gruber Distinguished Lecture in Women’s Rights and Luis Moreno Ocampo (first chief prosecutor, International Criminal Court) as the inaugural Gruber Distinguished Lecture in Global Justice.
3. The Gruber Fellowships in Global Justice and Women's Rights
The Gruber Fellowships in Global Justice and Women's Rights help foster international understanding and dialogue in the fields of global justice and women's rights. These post-graduate fellowships allow recent graduates (within three years) of Yale graduate and professional schools to spend a year working on issues of relevance to the fields of global justice and/or women's rights. Applications for 2013-2014 are due December 3, 2012. FAQs and application details
