Human Rights Lawyers Association



The Human Rights Lawyers Association is open to all connected with the law and the legal profession who have an interest in human rights law in the United Kingdom.

The Association currently has over 1800 members including solicitors, barristers, advocates, judges, government lawyers, legal academics, legal executives, in-house lawyers, pupils, trainees and law students.

We exist to increase knowledge and understanding of human rights and to aid their effective implementation within the UK legal framework and system of government.

"Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom"
-- Preamble, Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948
