HRLA is committed to nurturing and empowering the next generation of human rights defenders through education and training.

HRLA believes in the promotion of the rule of law and the guarantee of human rights through law.

The Human Rights Lawyers Association works closely with leading universities, training providers and the HRLA Young Lawyers' Committee to support and collaborate on initiatives designed to inspire law students and early career practitioners who are interested in human rights study, practice and advocacy. 


HRLA recently partnered with the Bar Human Rights Committee of England & Wales (BHRC) on a one-day virtual seminar, 'Human Rights Careers, Skills & Values', which welcomed leading practitioners working in human rights sharing valuable expertise and insight into how law students and early career lawyers can get involved in human rights advocacy. The day’s discussions are now available for viewing on YouTube here across four episodes.

HRLA is proud to support the University of Exeter Law School's Prize for Constitutional & Administrative Law, which is awarded annually to the first year student with the highest average in the module.


HRLA is also working with human rights academics to deliver an inspiring series of virtual events showcasing innovative approaches to human rights law teaching and training. Please visit the HRLA website regularly or sign up to the mailing list for further updates, events and opportunities within the Legal Education & Training programme.
