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. The views expressed in each article are solely those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Rights Review Editorial Board or the IHRP.

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 17, Issue 5 of Rights Review highlights different pieces from students representing all law school years.

In our February issue, we feature reflections about Ardi Imseis's discussion about his book "The United Nations and the Question of Palestine", a discussion about the law of Genocide with Professor William A. Schabas, the doctrine of countermeasures under international law, and the 52nd annual Canadian Council for International Law Conference.
