The Human Rights Brief (HRB) is an electronic publication at American University Washington College of Law (WCL). The HRB, WCL’s oldest Brief, was founded in 1994 in partnership with the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law. Today, the HRB maintains global readership, and it is supervised by an eight-person Faculty Advisory Board. Student staff members participate in creating and editing content in a variety of mediums, and they learn valuable skills through workshops, events, and mentorship opportunities.
