The Notre Dame Law School Global Human Rights Clinic (NDLS GHRC) is the experiential learning unit of the Notre Dame Law School Human Rights Program that is open to all Notre Dame Law School students (Juris Doctor, LLM, and JSD). The NDLS GHRC builds on the Human Rights Program’s half-century track record of experience in the formation of human rights lawyers from all over the world, while drawing from our established pedagogy in Natural Law, Jurisprudence and International Human Rights Law.

The GHRC engages in three core functions essential to the professional formation of our students - representation, education, and advocacy - in collaboration with our network of alumni and partner organizations around the world. The NDLS GHRC provides Notre Dame Law students with: real-world lawyering experiences in representing individuals, organizations and groups combating human rights violations worldwide; human rights training and education with national courts and judiciaries, international organizations, and HR LLM alumni partners; and the opportunity to assist with advocacy for legislative implementation of human rights and human rights driven-legal reform in States throughout the world.
