Spotlight on Clinical Work:
Fact-Finding in South Africa
- Human Rights and the Environment
Clinicians and clinical students traveled to South Africa this January to explore reports of
soil, dust, and water contamination.
- Surveying the Scene
Clinical trips provide students with on-the-ground training in documentation, fact-finding, and interviewing. Here, the team examines a mine dump in close proximity to residential communities.

The International Human Rights Clinic provides opportunities for Harvard Law School 2L, 3L, and LLM students to gain legal practice experience on vital human rights issues for academic credit. Students work closely with clinical supervisors on a variety of projects pertaining to international human rights advocacy and research.
First year law students and other members of the Harvard-affiliated community may participate in projects through the clinic on a volunteer basis. Such student work often satisfies the law school’s pro bono requirement. The student human rights group, Harvard Law Student Advocates for Human Rights, works closely with the clinic to engage students in projects according to their background, ability and interests.
If you are a Harvard Law School student interested in applying to the International Human Rights Clinic, please contact the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs or visit their website for more information on the clinical registration and application process.
