Georgetown Law offers one of the nation's largest curriculums on domestic and international human rights law. If you're interested in learning about justice and accountability, women's human rights, refugee and asylum law, or business and human rights, among many other topics — and learning from experts in the field — you've come to the right place.

Human Rights Advocacy in Action Practicum

The Human Rights Advocacy in Action Practicum is HRI's flagship human rights course. This project-based practicum enlists students in tackling real-world human rights challenges and creates a learning environment that equips students to analyze a problem, assess the legal and policy situation, and propose and execute strategies for change.

Certificate Programs

Georgetown offers two certificate programs in human rights. J.D. students may pursue a certificate in Refugee and Humanitarian Emergencies. LL.M. may pursue a certificate in International Human Rights.
