"I came to the Center willing to learn and ready to start a new chapter in my life, but little did I know how incredibly life changing and eye opening the experience was going to be, and how true the statement is that it takes just one person to make a lasting impact."
Julie B., Former Intern
"I was fleeing my country where I had been tortured. As the only law firm in New York City that represents the deaf and hard of hearing, it is of utmost importance to recognize and support this law center."
Gibril G., Former Client
"When I step through the doors of the New York Center for Law and Justice, I see something very uncommon for a law firm. The fact that at its core it is built upon strong community bonds and the belief that kindness is one of the most valuable things in the world. Having studied ASL in high school I have been able to observe sign language interpreters at the center. The culmination of these experiences have also given me the ability to strive to be the best person I can be."
Robbie M., Current Intern
"My experience at the Center has been nothing but meaningful. Bruce and Liz have inspired me to act and think more selflessly, and they have broadened my knowledge of the deaf community and the legal world. After working with both of them, I am confident that they will provide me with future guidance and support in my pursuit of a profession in the legal services field."
Andrew Y., Current Intern
"By observing and participating in the work the Center does I learned about more aspects of law than I ever expected from a summer internship. The NYCLJ advocates for clients on an individual basis and works on impact litigation to create a lasting impact for the entire deaf community."
Genevieve L., Current Intern
