Iman Ali (BA 2013, University of Georgia; JD expected 2017) is the fifth Charles Moyer Human Rights Fellow. She will intern this summer at the Legal Resources Centre (LRC) in Cape Town, South Africa. LRC is dedicated to increasing legal advocacy and access to political and economic power structures for underserved groups. Specifically, LRC works from inside the system and uses the rule of law to protect the most vulnerable. Iman will be working on providing advocacy for the most vulnerable populations through litigation, law reform, and participation in partnerships and development processes. This past summer, Iman interned at Prison Justice League where she researched and wrote a complaint calling for the US Department of Justice to investigate the constitutional violations that are rampant in prisons throughout Texas as well the creation of a network that connects inmates with outside "free world" resources with the objective of giving prisoners more access to courts. At Texas Law, Iman is a member of the Thurgood Marshall Legal Society and of the Texas International Law Journal. She was also a member of Assault & Flattery, a parody production about law school. After graduation, Iman hopes to work in international human rights law.
