During this time, Professor Arthurs was awarded Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities to study the Irish Famine and the Middle Passage, earned a grant from the National Archives, and presented at teacher development programs operated by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Professor Arthurs also participated in the Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program and spent one year teaching in an inner-city school on special measures in London, England.
Immediately prior to attending law school, Professor Arthurs worked as a human rights volunteer in Bogotá, Colombia with Peace Brigades International.

During law school, Professor Arthurs co-founded the Immigrant Community Legal Advocacy Center, served as a Teaching Assistant in Civil Procedure II, and was Managing Editor of the Law Review.
