Special IHRC Projects Heading link
UIC Law’s International Human Rights Clinic (IHRC) is dedicated to the protection of human rights in the U.S. and around the world. The clinic’s human rights work consists of investigating, reporting, and engaging in advocacy to protect vulnerable communities.
IHRC advocates in international and regional judicial and quasi-judicial bodies such as the United Nations and the Inter-American Commission and Court of Human Rights. It works on human rights projects and cases involving environmental human rights, privacy and human rights, the rights of minorities and communities of color, and immigrants. IHRC also advocates in domestic courts and administrative agencies to represent asylum seekers and immigrants.
