Liberty Center for International Human Rights

 

The Liberty Center for International Human Rights (LCIHR) is a partnership between Liberty Counsel and Liberty University School of Law. The task of the partnership is to educate, train, research, advocate, support, promote the advancement of knowledge, and the implementation of international human rights.

LCIHR educates and trains law students, attorneys and advocates with skills to conduct research, lobby, and represent persons and entities before national and international forums. The Center assists other domestic and international organizations engaged in protecting and advancing human and religious rights. Through the Center, law students, scholars, and advocates are able to advance research, writing, and publication in international human rights, participate in inter-university and organizational programs on international human rights, international and domestic fellowships, externships and internship opportunities, and represent persons and entities before national and international forums.

Ongoing projects include research and advocacy on country-by-country and state-by-state human trafficking legislation, abortion, rule of law, and Sharia. Students develop projects and public awareness programs that educate the public about domestic and international human rights issues. The projects enable students to work directly with experts and lawmakers in formulating policy that relates to human rights.
