Description

This successor volume to Sohn and Buergenthal's Human Rights Lawyering is written from the diverse perspectives of practicing human rights lawyers in government, private practice, and academia. The book emphasizes the enforcement of human rights law in several settings, with optional exercises to develop students' professional skills. Drawing on materials from the highly successful Oxford Programme in International Human Rights Law, the book treats human rights law as a species of public and private international law and demonstrates its linkages to related fields of practice, including labor law, refugee law, humanitarian law, corporate law, environmental law, and international economic law.
