Supporting the International Human Rights Law Clinic helps students gain vital hands-on legal experience in protecting and investigating human rights.
One of the first human rights clinics in the country, the International Human Rights Law Clinic designs and implements creative solutions to fight for the human rights of individuals and marginalized communities. Students prepare and conduct litigation before national and international judicial forums concerning human rights violations. They also engage in interdisciplinary empirical studies on the impact of human rights abuses — research that aims to achieve policy outcomes.
Your contributions increase the reach of the clinic’s efforts. The clinic recently helped investigate the murder of a Honduran environmental activist, strengthened UN protections for human rights defenders, and exposed how unsolved murders affect the human rights of victims’ families in Oakland.
