The University of Texas School of Law: Human Rights and Comparative Constitutional Law

Institution The University of Texas School of Law
Department School of Law
Study type Taught


This innovative concentration provides students with a robust, critical, and comparative foundation in both human rights and constitutional law. It offers students a comprehensive understanding of contemporary human rights practices, including uses of constitutional law, in both domestic and international settings. The concentration is offered in cooperation with the law school's Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice. The concentration builds on two strengths of Texas Law — its constitutional law faculty, often considered to be among the best in the country, and the internationally recognized Rapoport Center, which serves as a focal point at the University for critical, interdisciplinary analysis and practice of human rights and social justice. The Rapoport Center includes more than 100 affiliated faculty members from across campus and collaborates closely with a number of other acclaimed centers. Each student may design an individual course of study tailored to his or her academic and professional interests, taking advantage of extensive curricular and clinical offerings, devoted inter-disciplinary faculty, and ongoing research projects and working groups at the Rapoport Center. This concentration is open to students with a foreign law degree and students with a J.D.
