Bernstein Institute for Human Rights.
Established in 2014, the Center on Civil Justice is dedicated to the study and practice of aggregate litigation and civil procedure. It is a place for judges, scholars, law professors, and practitioners to come together to study and discuss possible civil justice reforms. Not only does the center sponsor conferences on that topic, it also supports original research on a variety of complex legal issues.
Created to focus research on the topics of human rights advocacy, education, and scholarship, the Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights has been in operation for more than 15 years. Its most notable initiative is the China and International Human Rights Law Research Program, which partners the institute with Human Rights in China to help students build skills related to Internet freedom and international human rights advocacy.
