Washington University Global Studies Law Review


The students in Washington University’s Civil Justice Clinic have provided legal services to women and children who have been victims of violence in a wide array of socio-economic settings. They have also worked on policy initiatives that shape government on city, state and federal levels. But they have not typically had the opportunity to see how these issues- especially those involving human rights-play out in other countries. Social justice is an international endeavor-awareness of global human rights issues is essential for lawyers concerned about justice.
