International Human Rights Advocates
The International Human Rights Advocates (IHRA) is a student run pro bono organization that supports the universal promotion and protection of human rights throughout the world. IHRA works with lawyers, governments and human rights organizations to advance human rights globally. Participation in IHRA gives students a chance to learn about emerging issues in human rights, directly help individuals who have had their human rights violated, fulfill pro bono requirements, participate in international fieldwork, and learn about career opportunities in human rights. IHRA also sponsors events hosting numerous speakers, including diplomats; officials and judges from intergovernmental and regional mechanisms, national governments; civil society; and businesses throughout the year to discuss pressing issues in human rights.
