The Human Rights Law Centre was established in the School of Law in 1993, thereby formalising a long-standing commitment to human rights activities in the School. The aim of the Centre is to facilitate teaching and research on human rights issues. The Centre undertakes research and consultancy projects, publishes books and periodicals and organises conferences and lectures on human rights themes. It also runs Human Rights Law Short Courses and its members teach on the School of Law's LLM in Human Rights Law.
The Centre's membership is comprised of a number of staff members in the School of Law who have particular interests in human rights law and of Centre Research Fellows and other personnel. Students working in the field of human rights law also play a prominent role in the Centre's activities.
The Centre's activities have been supported by the Airey Neave Trust, the British Council, the Council of Europe, the European Union, the Ford Foundation, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the Rowntree Trust, the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the United Kingdom Department for International Development(DFID).
