Clinical education is a central feature of the CHRLP's work throughout the year. Students and recent graduates gain invaluable first-hand experience working with international NGOs, human rights partner organizations, Indigenous courts and communities, and a variety of international courts.
The Centre is also responsive to ad-hoc clinical education opportunities in the form of reports, briefs, and an academic freedom monitoring clinic, among others. These opportunities provide students with focused hands-on experience.
