Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) at the University of Oregon School of Law is part of the nationwide network of law students, professors, and lawyers committed to fostering the next wave of legal advocates for reproductive justice.
Reproductive justice addresses the social reality of inequality, specifically, the inequality of opportunities that we have to control our reproductive health. Reproductive justice will be achieved when all people and communities have access to the information, resources, and support they need in order to attain sexual autonomy and reproductive self-determination.
At UO Law, membership in LSRJ is open to all students. Members of LSRJ aim to educate, mobilize, and mentor law students in order to build a strong legal movement for reproductive rights. LSRJ will host sex-positive and pro-choice sexual education events open to all students, faculty, and staff. We will continue to educate ourselves and the law student body on issues related to reproductive justice and will stay up to date with the current legal and political challenges facing the movement. Additionally, LSRJ will build coalitions with community partners to mobilize support for reproductive justice within the law school and local communities. Finally, LSRJ will expand professional and training opportunities for law students by helping them secure internships and fellowships in reproductive justice law.
