About Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law

The Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law was established at American University Washington College of Law to provide scholarship and support for domestic and international human rights-based legal initiatives. For over twenty years, the Center has prepared students, practitioners and activists to advocate for human rights at home and abroad. It provides expert training, hosts conferences and workshops, and publishes key research and resources for legal professionals and students alike. The Center’s projects tackle the full scope of human rights and humanitarian legal issues, from torture to the rights of the disabled. All Center programming promotes the value of service, thereby grounding the Center as a core resource to the NGO community and a bridge between academia and civil society.
