Description

THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY
WASHINGTON COLLEGE OF LAW
CENTER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AND HUMANITARIAN LAW

As part of Washington College of Law's long-standing commitment to international human rights and to the rule of law, WCL established the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law in 1990 to work with students, faculty and the international legal community to provide scholarship and support for human rights initiatives around the world. The Center is dedicated to creating opportunities for students, practitioners and activists through training, complementary education, outreach, workshops & conferences, and research & publications. The Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law was founded in 1990 to provide a clearinghouse for the wide scope of activity at WCL concentrated on human rights and humanitarian law.

The Center has been an incubator for a variety of successful projects, many of which were started at the initiative of WCL students. Some of these projects have spun off to become independent programs. Today, programs such as the Academy for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, the War Crimes Research Office, the Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition, and the Human Rights Brief are among the core human rights projects at WCL.

The Center has five faculty Co-Directors, Dean Claudio Grossman, Prof. Herman Schwartz, Prof. Robert Goldman, Prof. Diane Orentlicher and Prof. Richard Wilson. Hadar Harris is the Center's Executive Director and Amelia Parker is the Center Program Coordinator. The Center also has a six-member Student Advisory Board.
