Humanities & Social Sciences Centre for the Study of Human Rights Law

Students have been active in the work of the Centre.

Activities have included organising film screenings for International Women’s Day, inviting speakers on topics from human rights in the media to international crimes, volunteering at local civil society conferences, attending human rights careers events, conducting research for Law School staff, conducting research as part of university-wide collaborations on the right to water, participating in international research collaborations with students from Strathclyde’s renowned Law Clinic, and responding to consultation calls.

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

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

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