The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the University of Texas School of Law offers Fall, Spring, and Summer internships to undergraduates who need internship credit, want human rights research experience, and desire to work in the field of human rights. Interns are chosen based on their academic credentials and background and interest in community outreach and human rights. Learn more.

Human Rights Student Advisory Council

The Human Rights Student Advisory Council (HRSAC) consists of representatives of undergraduate human rights organizations and individual at-large members. The HRSAC has a dual role: it represents the undergraduate voice in the Rapoport Center's human rights work by advising the Center on undergraduate needs, and it increases collaboration and communication between undergraduate human rights organizations to build greater undergraduate awareness and participation in human rights-oriented activities.
