Academic Resources

Bolster and supplement your existing legal education and knowledge of reproductive justice with issue briefs, primers, and reports.

We recognize that most law schools don’t include reproductive justice and intersectional discussions as part of their curriculum. Our primers, issue briefs, and reports help the legal community better understand how law and policies have a disparate impact on individuals and communities. If/When/How is committed to transforming legal education and providing students and instructors with the means and support to utilize an intersectional reproductive justice lens. Take a look.

This toolkit is designed to support students who are advocating for a reproductive rights law & justice (RRLJ) course at their law school. Read more
