Our members have worked across the world and on an array of human rights and humanitarian issues.  In each clinic and student-led project, we work in close collaboration with a domestic or international organization.

Here is a sample of our previous projects:

  • Writing a brief to the European Court of Human Rights about a case of torture in Chechnya, on behalf of the torture victim and in close collaboration with Russian human rights organizations.
  • Conducting field research on the persecution of the Ahmadiyya minority in Bangladesh, with a subsequent article published in the Wall Street Journal describing the situation
  • Developing a conflict analysis tool for use by the Office of the Prosecutor and the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
  • Writing an Amicus Brief to the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in a case about torture in Somalia.
