The Human Rights Clinic (HRC) provides students with firsthand experience in cutting-edge human rights litigation and advocacy at the local, national, regional, and international levels.

The HRC is a full year clinic and welcomes 2Ls, 3Ls, and LLMs. Students enroll for 6 credits per semester, attend class twice a week, and spend approximately 15-18 hours per week on case and project work, which includes at least one hour per week of direct supervision from an instructor. The HRC may also be offered in the summer semester with a more intensive schedule. Some students may stay in the HRC for an additional semester as student fellows

Prerequisites: Commitment to social justice and human rights advocacy. Completion or concurrent enrollment in International Human Rights Law or a basic human rights course.

Time Requirements: This clinic entails a very substantial time commitment in addition to the time spent preparing for and attending class. Clinic class meets for one hour and fifty minutes, twice weekly. Students are expected to spend approximately 12-15 hours per week on clinic project/case work.
