Rights Review


Rights Review is the independent student-led publication of the International Human Rights Program at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. All articles and publications are from the U of T community. We publish online and in print each month in the law school's student newspaper, Ultra Vires. You can also find us on Twitter and Facebook.


Volume 16, Issue 4 of Rights Review highlights the IHRP working groups.

In our January issue, we feature an interview with the new Director of the IHRP program, Sandra Wisner. We also hear from the students leading the International Human Rights Program (IHRP) working groups at the Faculty of Law.
