Student Research

Through the Center for Law and Global Justice, students contribute to the eradication of social injustice by participating in human rights projects focusing on migration, human trafficking, forced displacement, peace and democracy building, juvenile life without parole sentences, and corporate responsibility.

Students play a critical role in center programs by conducting research, developing curricula, and translating legal and governmental documents. Recent opportunities for students have included studying affirmative action, developing a U.N. report on California prison conditions, writing a petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, and researching the unlawful detention of Guantanamo detainees.
