International Human Rights Law Clinic

The International Human Rights Law Clinic (IHRLC) offers student attorneys the opportunity to represent non-U.S. citizens and organizations working to defend the human rights of non-U.S. citizens in a broad range of settings, including regional and international bodies, U.S. federal and state courts, and immigration court.

Our Focus

Through the combination of individual client and project-based work, with an additional classroom component of weekly clinic seminar, IHRLC students learn the responsibilities and skills of human rights lawyering while also integrating theory with practice. In doing so, IHRLC trains the next generation of human rights advocates while offering students the opportunity to make an impact on current, critical human rights issues facing marginalized communities domestically and abroad.
