Human Rights Center

The Human Rights Center promotes research on real-world challenges, prepares future lawyers with the commitment and skills to defend human rights, and partners with civil society, governments, and institutions to impact law, policy, and practice.

Founded in 1988, the Center is well placed as part of the exceptional human rights community at the Law School, across the University, and in the Twin Cities. Students benefit from on-campus programming and opportunities for applied research, hands-on experience, and professional development in the fields of human rights and international law.
