Professor Jocelyn Getgen Kestenbaum, director of Cardozo's Human Rights and Atrocity Prevention Clinic, spoke with U.S. News & World Report about the importance of a good clinical experience in law school for aspiring human rights lawyers.
Professor Myriam Gilles testified before of the House Judiciary Committee. She said, "Forced arbitration clauses are everywhere...what this really means is if an employer rips off a group of employees, they can't sue that employer...The only thing they can do is take on all the burden and cost of going against the employer in a one on one arbitration...Forced arbitration is so popular that over the past decade it's almost impossible to find a product, a service, an amenity of modern life that doesn't force us to sign away our rights. Over 60 million American workers are subject to forced arbitration."
