International Human Rights Clinic

The Cornell International Human Rights Clinic is devoted to working on a wide array of human rights projects, ranging from the development of materials for use in training foreign judges to filing briefs before U.S. and international courts. Clinic participants have filed both party and amicus briefs in U.S. Federal Court of Appeals, the European Court of Human Rights, U.S. Supreme Court, and have prepared reports for hearings before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Clinic students have also undertaken international field research. Through the International Human Rights Clinic, Cornell Law students have helped strengthen the rule of law and legal processes in communities throughout the world. The Clinic provides free legal research and assistance to international NGOs working on key human rights projects.
