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 facilitates internship opportunities, coordinates speakers, and houses the law school’s international experiential learning program. The Center also incorporates course offerings at the College of Law, including: International Human Rights Law, Public International Law and Immigration Law. The Center features the only experiential learning program in the Mountain West focused on international human rights protection and promotion. Under the supervision of experienced lawyers, Wyoming students have the opportunity to apply what they are learning in the classroom to real life problem-solving and to contribute to human rights education, research and advocacy through select partnerships with leading organizations and institutions around the world.
