West's successor volume to Sohn and Buergenthal's classic text, Human Rights Lawyering is the only casebook written from the diverse perspectives of practicing human rights lawyers in government, private practice, and academia. The book emphasizes the enforcement of human rights law in a variety of settings, with optional exercises to develop the students' professional skills. Drawing on materials from the highly successful Oxford Programme in International Human Rights Law, the book treats human rights law as a species of public and private international law and demonstrates its linkages to related fields of practice, including labor law, refugee law, humanitarian law, corporate law, environmental law, and international economic law.
