Sheri Rosenberg ’94 Directs New Human Rights And Genocide Prevention Clinic

Sheri Rosenberg

Sheri Rosenberg ’94 recently returned to Cardozo to be director of the Human Rights and Genocide Prevention Clinic and deputy director of the Program in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies. The Clinic, which begins in spring 2005, will give students first-hand experience in human rights advocacy, while the Program in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies was established in fall 2003 to foster education, research and advocacy on Holocaustrelated issues and genocide prevention. “Cardozo had a need for these programs and I had a need to be part of them,” Rosenberg said. “I feel grateful to be here.”

In 2000, Rosenberg was one of two lawyers selected by the US Department of State to work for the Human Rights Chamber in Sarajevo, Bosnia, and Herzegovina. There she researched and wrote judicial opinions for the judges of the Human Rights Chamber, an international court established under the Dayton Peace Agreement, and trained local lawyers and judges in human rights law. “The work was fascinating,” Rosenberg said. “I was there for two years and it felt like a day and a half.”

Subsequently, she was awarded a human rights fellowship at Columbia University, where she worked for the United Nations’ Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, and completed her LL.M. In addition to working with several human rights organizations, she was a civil rights litigator in private practice and an assistant corporation counsel with the New York City Law Department.
