International Human Rights Clinic
Piloted in January 2014 and open to both J.D and LL.M. students, the UW Law International Human Rights Clinic focuses on business involvement with human rights violations. Under the supervision of two faculty members and in partnership with select nongovernmental organizations, students work in teams on projects designed to prevent corporate violations of human rights in the workplace, the environment, and entire communities.
Potential clinic projects include:
- Developing draft legislation or research in support of legislation or regulations
- Drafting an amicus brief
- Conducting comparative legal or empirical research to support an active campaign or report
- Assisting with research, evidence collection and complaint drafting for various types of business and human rights grievance mechanisms.
The projects have a global reach, not necessarily focused on the United States.
