As of 2019, less than one-third of law schools offered classes on these topics

When I began law school with the goal of specializing in reproductive rights and justice, I knew I would be fighting an uphill battle after graduation. But I didn’t realize I would have to fight during law school, too. According to one 2019 analysis, less than one-third of law schools offered classes on reproductive rights and justice, and while that number is growing, it’s still not enough. When law schools ignore the subject, the ripple effects hurt us all.
I am lucky enough to attend New York University School of Law, which has a specific reproductive justice program, but I’ve still had to fight to be taken seriously outside of my reproductive justice class.
