Human Rights Happy Hour Speaker Series

The Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice hosts a speaker series featuring faculty from various disciplines both from UT and from other universities. Faculty and students from around campus gather regularly at the School of Law to hear speakers on a range of topics related to human rights. Speakers are encouraged to present works in progress so that the participants might be involved in the development of the work. The speaker series is entitled “Human Rights Happy Hour,” both to indicate the usual afternoon meeting time and to evoke the hopeful and collaborative nature of human rights work. Many of the speakers also meet separately with students to discuss practicing in the human rights field.
