Founded in the spring of 2005, the Human Rights and Genocide Clinic provides students with the opportunity to design and implement creative solutions to improve the lives of victims of human rights abuses throughout the world. In coordination with nongovernmental organizations and United Nations offices here and abroad, students prepare and conduct litigation before regional and international human rights forums.
