Learn more about the Transnational Worker Rights Clinic

The Clinic seeks to link advocacy for the employment rights of local transnational workers and advocacy for the labor and human rights of low-wage working people around the globe.

The Clinic is based at the Central Texas Immigrant Worker Rights Center , a project of the Equal Justice Center . This Clinic was established through a generous grant from the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Foundation, and is part of the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the Law School.

As they help low-income workers recover unpaid wages, students in the Transnational Worker Rights Clinic acquire practical skills, examine headline-making policy issues, and address some of the law’s most fundamental questions. While in pursuit of these goals, earlier this year the Clinic also passed a remarkable milestone: a recent settlement vaulted the Clinic over the $1 million dollar mark in total wages recovered.
