Center for International Human Rights Law & Advocacy

The Center for International Human Rights Law & Advocacy at the University of Wyoming College of Law provides opportunities for students to engage with global human rights issues. Since the center’s founding in August 2010, Wyoming students have represented individuals fleeing persecution in asylum proceedings, promoted the rights of women and girls in Mozambique and Cambodia, and advised lawmakers in Uganda on best practices relating to oil governance, among other projects.

The Center’s mission is twofold:

  • To educate law students to address international legal problems; and
  • To protect the human rights of clients at home and abroad.

The Experiential Learning component of the Center strives to provide students with:

  • Exposure to the many types of human rights advocacy, including litigation, education, comparative research, fact-finding and investigation;
  • Instruction in relevant substantive law; and
  • A collaborative environment in which to represent clients and discuss challenges with peers, professionals, and professors.
