The Center for Human Rights provides research and educational opportunities for the integration of biblical principles and international human rights laws. The Center provides a forum for students and faculty to explore the nature of God and man, as well as the rights, duties and obligations that flow from that relationship. The Center supports the Human Rights courses taught at Trinity Law School, sponsors an annual Writing Competition, funds Research Fellowships, and organizes and promotes international and domestic Human Rights programs.

Summer Human Rights Program in Strasbourg, France

A special benefit of study at Trinity Law School is the opportunity to participate in the Summer Human Rights Program in Strasbourg, France.  This program is an advanced course in international and comparative human rights law that is taught by leading academics and practitioners from around the world.  This program provides students with the opportunity to examine contemporary human rights issues from a Christian perspective.  In an effort to provide students with a comprehensive human rights education, class time usually includes courses taught at the International Institute of Human Rights.   Program participants spend the month of July studying current human rights issues and law students may earn 6 units of credit upon completion of the course.  Trinity Law School is currently developing other international programs.
