In this capacity she was responsible for providing ACLU affiliates nationwide with legislative, legal, and communications advice and support. She also litigated reproductive rights cases. She has spoken widely about reproductive rights and given testimony before several state legislatures on this issue. Professor Borgmann is the editor of the Reproductive Rights Prof Blog.
Why I Teach at CUNY Law?
"For me, CUNY School of Law has meant being able to move seamlessly from legal practice to academia without leaving the world of public interest law. Teaching at CUNY Law School has allowed me to continue my personal commitment to public interest law in an exciting and unique academic environment in which students, faculty, and staff work together toward social justice on a wide range of fronts."
