THE ONLINE HOME OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS PROGRAM & INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS CLINIC

The Human Rights Program was founded in 1984 as a center for human rights scholarship, and the International Human Rights Clinic grew out of the Program. Today, faculty and staff of the Human Rights Program and the International Human Rights Clinic include scholars and practitioners with decades of experience in the field. As part of the broader human rights community at Harvard, we work closely with other faculty, clinics, numerous graduate students, and research centers at the Law School and University.
