The IntLawGrrls editorial team is delighted to welcome three new student editors to the blog: Jamie Robbins, Ashlye Meyer, and Carly Wheaton.
Jamie Robbins is a rising 3L at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. She is interested in human rights law, and, more specifically, the intersection of human rights principles and intellectual property law. This summer she is interning with the Cardozo Legal Institute for Holocaust and Human Rights, where she is working with the Atrocity Prevention Legal Training Project to develop learning materials to advance the teaching of atrocity prevention in law school courses. She is excited to continue working on human rights issues this fall as a student intern with the Benjamin B. Ferencz Human Rights and Atrocity Prevention Clinic.
Ashlye Meyer is a rising 3L at the Cardozo School of Law. She graduated with high honors from New York University with a degree in film and philosophy. This summer she has been working with Cardozo’s Human Rights and Atrocity Prevention Clinic on the Blasphemy Project, tracking how various blasphemy laws comport with international human rights standards. She has also been doing research for constitutional and international law scholar, Professor Deborah Pearlstein. Her own research topics include international human rights, women’s rights, and LGBT issues. She will continue working with the Human Rights Clinic into her 3L year at Cardozo.
Carly Wheaton is a second-year law student at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. She is from Florida, and attended Florida State University, where she double-majored in Political Science and Psychology, and became certified in Emergency Management and Homeland Security. Carly has always felt an innate need to advocate for others and promote equality amongst all groups of people, and so she moved straight from her undergraduate university to New York City to begin her law school career. This past summer, Carly interned with a judge in the Matrimonial Part of the New York State Supreme Court. Carly has a passion for family law, but at the end of the day her mission is to ensure that everyone is fairly represented, equally protected and, most importantly, heard. When Carly is not studying the law, her favorite pastime is to play tennis with her father and run philanthropic 5Ks.
