Gender Law/IHRL?


pepona

Hi! I've just been selected for a Fulbright scholarship in Argentina and I'm doing some research regarding the schools I should apply to for 2017-2018 LLM. I'm looking for an LLM specialized in Gender Law or Human Rights or both. I want a school with fresh and politically bold ideas, preferably urbanly located.
Does anyone of you know if such a LLM program/school exists? From what I could read from these forums the best choice would be either Columbia or NYU.
What do you guys think?

Congrats on the Fulbright grant! Both Columbia and NYU are very conveniently located (the 20 minutes subway ride from CLS to Midtown Manhattan is frankly not a real issue, do not make this an important element of your choice). I am not aware of a huge difference in class offerings in your field, but both campuses feature a disturbing amount of social justice warriors and leftist/feminist/race-based student societies and professors who will tell you that Republicans are the scum of the Earth (which is, I guess, what you mean by "fresh and politically bold ideas"), so you should be fine with either one. In any event, Columbia's Suzanne Goldberg is very renowned and highly recommended by some of my former classmates, as is Carol Sanger.

LOL. Yes, Columbia is more extreme than NYU
