Fifteen Fordham Law School students are undertaking internships supported by the Leitner Center around the globe this summer. Students receiving Leitner Center stipends to support their internships are working in a variety of positions working in international human rights law. They are working on a wide range of important global issues in Egypt, Nepal, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Tajikistan, and the United States.
