Human Rights Project

Founded in 2008, the KCL Human Rights Project is the cornerstone of the Pro Bono Society of King’s College London. The Project offers students the opportunity to acquire and deepen their knowledge on Human Rights and related issues. We encourage and indeed aid students wishing to pursue a career in the Human Rights field.

Students and speakers from all academic disciplines, cultural backgrounds and political opinions are welcome to attend HRP events. The Human Rights Project aims to mirror the diverse make-up of King’s College London and wider society. In doing so, it aims to create a platform for discussion, debate, opinion forming and challenges to those opinions.

The Human Rights Project of the KCL Pro Bono Society believes in giving each student a voice and in creating a platform in which that voice can be heard.

Past activities have included:

  • Offering volunteering opportunities at the Law Society’s International Action team and the Refugee Council;
  • Organising a “Human Rights Week” with talks by various human rights organisations like Advocates for international Development and Human Rights Watch;
  • Publishing a student-run  “HumanWrites” journal;
  • Holding an internship fair to facilitate the provision of internships in the field;
  • Organising a Human Rights Moot with the support and collaboration of Landmark Chambers;
  • Inviting several external speakers to participate in seminars and debates on a topics such as Children’s Rights and Equality & Diversity.
