Centre for the Study of Human Rights Law

The Centre for the Study of Human Rights Law (CSHRL) launched in 2008 as a focal point for research and teaching in human rights law.

We are a cluster of academic staff with research, teaching, practice, and public engagement expertise in the area of human rights law, based within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.



The expanding impact of human rights law on society is reflected in the breadth of our research interests

We collaborate with Strathclyde's award winning Law Clinic on Human Rights projects

We have awarded nine prizes for the best LLM dissertations since launching the prize in 2014.
