Human Rights and the Law

Human Rights and the Law is an interactive guide to researching human rights with a focus on the law. It provides information on current and past cases both in Australia and overseas, as well as links to resources such as relevant books and journals. The guide is produced by the Law Library, in collaboration with Associate Professor John Tobin.

Human Rights are Aussie Rules

The Human Rights are Aussie Rules Project is a schools-based education program teaching children about human rights through principles of fair play and good sportsmanship. When children compare the rules of fair play in life to the rules on the sports field, concepts such as freedom, respect, equality and dignity become very easy to relate to, rather than just abstract ideas.

Human Rights Law Centre

The Centre achieves this by undertaking a strategic combination of policy advocacy, litigation, education and capacity building.
