Human Rights
Student Society

Oxford's premier society dedicated to the promotion of careers in human rights law.

Founded in 2021, the Oxford Human Rights Student Society's (OHRSS) mission is to help students attain careers in human rights law.

Through careers events with human rights law firms, organisations and personalities, we aim to highlight the human rights opportunities available to graduates and illuminate the process of applying to these positions. We also hope to connect students with a keen interest in human rights law to inspirational figures from a wide range of specialties in the field of human rights law, with intent to create a valuable and supportive network with industry experts.

Since our founding in 2021, we have been privileged to host events with some of the biggest names in human rights law: notable QCs, the former President of the UN War Crimes Tribunals, the Director of the Howard League,  the Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Section Chiefs of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and more.  We aim to tailor offer a wide range of events to suit our members' varied human rights interests.  

Access to our events is free for all current members of the University of Oxford.  Sign-up to OHRSS membership below!
