International Human Rights Clinic

The Clinic is the practice arm of the Human Rights Program. It works to protect the human rights of clients and communities around the world through documentation; legal and strategic analysis; litigation; treaty negotiations; and advocacy initiatives. Through supervised practice, students learn the responsibilities and skills of human rights lawyering.

Academic Program

The Academic Program is the center for scholarship and research at the Human Rights Program. It inspires and offers guidance to international human rights learning at the Law School. Founded by Professor Emeritus Henry Steiner in 1984, the Program helps students, advocates, and scholars to deepen their knowledge of human rights, and to advance discussions and critical reflection on human rights.
