Columbia Human Rights Law Review, a student-edited legal journal, publishes student and professional articles on domestic and international human rights issues. The journal seeks to present in-depth analyses of specific legal questions as well as broad surveys of the law in particular areas. Some of the topics covered include freedom of speech, criminal law and procedure, poverty and family law, the impact of legal institutions on the lives of individuals and groups, and the efficacy of various international efforts to protect human rights. In addition, the Columbia Human Rights Law Review publishes "A Jailhouse Lawyers' Manual," a legal resource that helps prisoners negotiate the U.S. legal system. The staff is selected from applications received after students' first year. Members of the editorial board are chosen from the second-year staff.
