Human Rights Lab Courses

The Human Rights Lab offers two seminar courses each academic year to UChicago undergraduate students. The courses are designed to engage students in a deeper understanding of the complex social and political aspects of mass incarceration and racialized policing. 

Human Rights Lab BA Fellowship

The Lab offers the Human Rights Lab BA Fellowship, an opportunity for rising fourth-year students whose BA theses examine human rights issues related to prisons, policing, and the criminal legal system (e.g. solitary confinement, the criminalization of sexuality and reproduction, police misconduct and violence, felony disenfranchisement, selective enforcement, and alternatives to incarceration).
