American University Washington College of Law's Human Rights Brief is an important educational tool for all of us and is a tremendous source for those involved in human rights work around the world.

On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Brief, I will reflect on what I perceive to be the changes necessary for legal education and discuss the role of human rights in that process.
