Student News: Human Rights Law Clinic applications now open
Press release issued: 20 September 2017
Applications are now open to join the Human Rights Law Clinic, which gives students with the opportunity to provide pro-bono legal research assistance to organisations working on human rights legal issues.
Founded in 2009, the Human Rights Law Clinic is a programme designed to involve students in projects aimed at supporting the work of international, regional and national organisations engaged in the promotion and protection of human rights law. It is an opportunity to work with the Human Rights Implementation Centre and acquire practical knowledge and experience in international human rights law and practice
Being appointed a member of the clinic gives students the chance to further develop their legal research and writing skills while contributing to the Centre’s aims of advancing the implementation of human rights standards worldwide.
The Clinic's projects vary from year to year depending, in part, on the type of request received from partner organisations. This year we have projects with international and regional organisations and civil society organisations in Africa and India.
