Christine Chiu is a staff attorney and the newest addition to the Health Justice team. Christine has already hit the ground running and we’re excited to fight the fight for social justice with her. She joined NYLPI after spending a year at African Services Committee as a Kirkland & Ellis New York City Public Service Fellow representing primarily African undocumented clients seeking immigration relief. Christine was an International Institute for Law and Justice Scholar at NYU School of Law and focused her studies on human rights and social justice law. While earning her J.D., Christine worked at the U.N. International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, Platform for Labour Action – advocating for the rights of marginalized workers in Uganda, and the Door Legal Services – providing legal assistance to New York City youth. She also co-authored a report on discrimination against Muslim communities in post-9/11 counterterrorism policy. Christine enjoys baking, eating baked goods, and snuggling with her geriatric dog.
