The Cowan Fellows Human Rights Study Project (HRSP) is a student-run organization at the University of Virginia School of Law dedicated to promoting awareness of legal issues surrounding the development and protection of human rights in foreign countries.

For the twelfth year of the program, the Cowan Fellows traveled to Ghana to examine various human rights issues in the country. The group’s members are currently working to turn their field research into original academic scholarship which will be presented to the UVA Law community in the spring semester. Presentations are scheduled for March 31, 2014 and will take place in Caplin Pavilion at the Virginia School of Law.

If you have any questions, please contact HRSP president Brian Kennedy. We are especially interested in new fundraising opportunities. Please consider becoming a sponsor of the Human Rights Study Project.
