International Human Rights Clinic
The International Human Rights Clinic provides students with the opportunity to work on litigation cases that have broad effects beyond our borders.
This clinic focuses on international human rights litigation in U.S. courts, especially under the Alien Tort Statute (28 USC §1350). Students participate in the litigation of pending cases at the trial court and appellate levels, including strategy discussions, evaluation of claims, discovery, briefing and preparation for oral arguments.
