In addition to the Global Justice Clinic,  NYU School of Law offers a wide range of courses on international human rights and humanitarian law, many of them taught by CHRGJ faculty. Topics covered include the universal and regional legal regimes, the impact of human rights law on national legal systems, international economic institutions, war crimes tribunals, truth commissions, and the United Nations, to name a few.

Below is a list of courses taught this year by CHRGJ faculty. Course offerings include numerous additional courses that deal with human rights law in a broader context or with human rights problems through the lens of U.S. or comparative constitutional law. Prospective and current students should consult NYU School of Law’s complete course listing; our faculty biography pages; and the Bernstein Institute’s Human Rights Hub, a directory of NYU faculty and staff working on human rights issues across the university.
