Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights

The Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights at Yale Law School was founded in 1989 to honor the late Orville H. Schell, Jr., a distinguished lawyer, vice chairman of Helsinki Watch, and chairman of Americas Watch from its founding in 1981 until his death in 1987. The Schell Center coordinates a diverse program of human rights activities that serve students and scholars at Yale and contribute to the development of the human rights community locally and internationally.

The Schell Center promotes activism through summer and postgraduate fellowships, supports the Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Project and the Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal, and conducts the Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic.
