The mission of Human Rights ND is to promote global human rights. In particular, their goals include, but are not limited to: freeing all prisoners of conscience; ensuring fair and prompt trials for political prisoners; abolishing the death penalty, torture and other cruel treatment of prisoners; ending political killings and "disappearances"; and opposing human rights abuses by opposition groups. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a guiding document for Human Rights ND.

The Klau Center is proud to support the work of this independent undergraduate group at Notre Dame.

The series consists of weekly presentations by members of the LL.M. Program in International Human Rights Law, a joint program between Notre Dame Law School and the Klau Center. The speakers, each a human rights lawyer in their respective countries, addresse issues pertinent to their work and answers students' questions about human rights advocacy.
