Human rights activities at Yale Law School: an overview 

The Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights coordinates a variety of human rights programs at the Yale Law School.

The Schell Center:

sponsors frequent panels, lectures, and conferences on human rights topics, including the regular Human Rights Workshop: Current Issues and Events;

acts as a liaison between the Law School and the human rights community;

advises students about human rights research and about job and career opportunities;

sponsors visiting human rights scholars and activists; and

fosters human rights activities throughout Yale University

The Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic is a three-credit course in which students engage in practical work on human rights issues under faculty supervision, usually in collaboration with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). The Clinic’s classroom component provides students with an opportunity to explore both the principles and the practice of international human rights law.

The Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Project is an extracurricular student organization. Through the Lowenstein Project, students carry out human rights-related research and advocacy projects, usually on behalf of NGOs.

Academic courses in human rights law and related subjects are regularly offered at the Law School. Students interested in human rights are encouraged to take courses in:

international human rights,

public interna­tional law,

comparative law,

international business transactions,

international organizations,

constitutional law,

civil rights law,

immigration and refugee law,

environmental law, and

criminal law,

as well as such clinical courses as legislative advocacy, nonprofit organizations, community legal services, housing, and immigration.

Students may also enroll in human rights courses offered by other schools and departments within the University.

Kirby Simon Summer Human Rights Fellowships provide travel and living-expense stipends to allow students to under­take human rights work during the summer.

The Robert L. Bernstein Fellowship in International Human Rights funds three Law School graduating students or recent graduates to work full time for a year on human rights advocacy projects that they have developed, usually in conjunction with human rights organizations.

The Robina Foundation Fellowship in International Human Rights funds up to three Law School graduating students or recent graduates to work full time for a year in areas related to international human rights, particularly as international or foreign judicial clerks, international prosecutorial interns, or interns with governmental or intergovernmental agencies, or on independent research projects.

The Robert M. Cover–Allard K. Lowenstein Fellowship in International Human Rights provides a two-year opportunity for a lawyer to gain clinical human rights teaching experience in the Lowenstein Clinic. The Cover-Lowenstein Fellow also helps coordinate the activities of the Schell Center.

The Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal is an interdisciplinary, student-run journal available online and in a hard-copy version.
