Rights Review


Rights Review presents our final issue for the 2021-2022 academic! 

Maggie Xing (3L) surveys the failures of the public and private world in upholding human rights due diligence in the arms industry. Duncan Crabtree (1L) reports on a recent roundtable discussion of Prof. Kent Roach's book on human rights remedies. Julianne Schmidt (1L) shines a spotlight on recent attacks on artistic freedom around the world. Editors-in-Chief Taskeen Nawab (3L) and Sabrina Sukhdeo (3L) sign off with a sobering reflection on the utility of international human rights law.
