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.
With your organisation's support, we look forward to introducing the next generation of lawyers to a fulfilling, exciting and socially-beneficial career.
OHRSS aims to...
... host events with NGOs, law firms and individuals which aim to enlighten students as to the roles in human rights available to them, and how they should go about applying to these positions. Such events may include firm presentations, application workshops, case study discussion workshops and more.
... foster a strong community of like-minded students, each with a passion for human rights law, and collaborate with existing societies to promote varied human rights experiences in Oxford. We hope to draw together people with a diverse range of experience under a common goal of accessing human rights careers.
... provide opportunities for students from all backgrounds (including both law and non-law students). Society membership is completely free, so that we may attract the highest calibre of members without exclusion.
