The Human Rights Clinic aims to enhance the human rights curriculum and learning experience by providing opportunities for students to actively contribute to the promotion and protection of human rights domestically and internationally.

Undergraduate and graduate law students at the University of Hong Kong partner with community organizations to promote, protect and strengthen human rights.

The individual course offerings and projects provide students with opportunities to develop a professional network and mentoring relationships with practitioners at international and local law firms, barristers’ chambers, government bodies, United Nations agencies, and international and domestic civil society organizations. The experiences, networks and mentoring relationships enhance and deepen student learning as well as promote the values of pro bono legal service.
