HRLR Online is an online forum for the rigorous discussion and analysis of current issues in human rights law. HRLR Online seeks to publish both academics and practitioners alike, as well as current law students passionate about human rights law and advocacy. 

Like our parent publication, the Columbia Human Rights Law Review, HRLR Online seeks to address civil liberties and human rights under both international and domestic law. HRLR Online believes that thoughtful discussion of human rights issues and broad dissemination of information about legal remedies for human rights violations promote human rights around the world. With our online platform, the Columbia Human Rights Law Review hopes to more quickly address pressing and controversial areas of human rights law and encourage the vigorous debate of such issues. The Columbia Human Rights Law Review also hopes to provide a more readily accessible forum for human rights scholarship, so that a diverse community is able to connect to and benefit from the work of our authors.
