CUNY Law Impact: HIV/AIDS Advocacy


The story of CUNY Law is the stories of our alumni and the impact they have on the world: inequality, poverty, immigration, and the rights of women, children, families, the elderly. They right wrongs as defenders and judges. They serve the pressing needs of the poor and disadvantaged in communities that often lack access to legal representation.
