This chapter examines the use of human rights in clinical practice. In doing so it critiques the traditional view of human rights as purely an international framework and instead links it to the social justice work undertaken by legal clinics across the country. Using the experiences and perspectives of clinical students it challenges clinical legal programs to embrace and use human rights in their everyday work.
