Gabriel Arkles
Legal Research and Writing Professor
Northeastern University School of Law

Gabriel Arkles teaches Legal Research and Writing. His research interests include the intersection of gender, race, and disability in criminal law and punishment; the role of lawyers in social movements; and the development of lawyering skills from a social justice perspective.

Professor Arkles joined Northeastern after three years as an Acting Assistant Professor at NYU School of Law, where he taught a mandatory first-year Lawyering class on legal research and writing, client counseling, negotiation, mediation, and oral advocacy. For the six years prior to his appointment at NYU, he practiced at the Sylvia Rivera Law Project as a Staff Attorney and Director of Prisoner Justice Initiatives.

There he provided legal services to low-income people and people of color who are transgender, intersex, or gender nonconforming. He also engaged in impact litigation, public education, and policy work to advance justice for these communities. While his work at SRLP spanned issues of public benefits, name changes, identity documents, immigration, discrimination, and shelter access, his focus was on conditions of confinement for imprisoned people. Professor Arkles was also a founding member of the Lorena Borjas Community Fund, an organization that provides bail and bond support to criminalized LGBT immigrants.
