Professor Quigley just published the first of what he hopes will be a series of social justice lawyer profiles.
Law on the Margins: a Profile of Social Justice Lawyer Chaumtoli Huq
“Law on the margins is so joyful. You are connecting with people!”
Chaumtoli Huq is Bangladeshi-American Muslim human rights lawyer. She describes herself as a community centered, social movement lawyer. Now teaching at Brooklyn Law, her social justice legal career has focused on civil and human rights, especially workplace justice issues assisting organizations for immigrants. She served briefly as general counsel for the Public Advocate of New York until 2014 when she involuntarily became famous as a victim in a high profile police brutality case. More about that later.
