ELSA’s Human Rights Project comprises dedicated and enthusiastic members with a GENUINE interest in Human Rights. The goal of the Project’s directors is to create a strong Human Rights brand within ELSA, to forge links and build partnerships with other Human Rights groups (UK and/or international), to set up a volunteering programme for ELSA members interested in Human Rights and to promote awareness of human rights issues. In addition, committee members intend to organise ELSA Human Rights events and activities e.g. film screenings, seminars, lectures, study visits/field trips etc.
ELSA is a member of the Human Rights Lawyers Association. We strongly believe in Human Rights and as such we encourage our members to become active in this field. You can do this by organising or supporting Human Rights events, volunteering for Human Rights agencies or other NGOs, or simply spreading knowledge about Human Rights to other students and young people. ELSA is open to co-operation with other student / youth Human Rights organisations as we recognise that there is strength in unity. We are all working toward the same goals and with limited human (and financial) resources, it makes sense to work together.
