The CUNY Chapter follows NLG's mission that human rights shall be regarded as more sacred than property interests. The chapter conducts Street Law Trainings; organizes legal observer trainings, voter registration and Fair Trade Coffee campaigns; and schedules panel discussions on various issues ranging from anti-death penalty and prison reform to environmental activism. Street law is a student-run program that aims to empower disenfranchised community members through brief exposure to criminal procedure.
