Women Beyond Bars: Reentry and Human Rights
Final Report | Executive Summary


The International Human Rights Clinic requires students to navigate international human rights law theory and practice in the service of real clients. Clinic students collaborate with international human rights organizations abroad and community-based groups in Los Angeles on policy, litigation and advocacy projects, and in some cases students provide individual representation. Clinic students also participate in an intensive seminar, which provides the theoretical counterpart to their practical work, and through which they develop skills vital to social justice advocacy.

In 2018 -19 the IHRC is co-taught by Professors Achiume and Berra. The fall semester will focus on projects in support of Professor Achiume’s mandate as United Nations Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination. In addition, Professor Berra will offer a J-Term course where students will gain international field experience in human rights practice in Honduras, Central America.
