About HRLR Online

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.

Information regarding submissions to HRLR Online can be found on our general Submissions page.

Jailhouse Lawyer's Manual
The HRLR publishes and sells A Jailhouse Lawyer's Manual (“the JLM”), a legal resource produced to assist prisoners and others in negotiating the U.S. legal system. With thirty-six chapters on legal rights and procedures including the appellate process, federal habeas corpus relief, the Prison Litigation Reform Act, religious freedom in prison, the rights of prisoners with disabilities, and many more, the JLM is a major legal reference for prisoners and libraries across the country. The HRLR publishes this critical resource and delivers it to some of those individuals whose rights are most threatened in our judicial system yet who often have no access to legal assistance. Our students deliver over a thousand JLMs every year to prisoners, institutions, libraries, and organizations. We also publish a Spanish version of the JLM to serve as a resource to Spanish-language prisoners. Finally, the JLM offers an Immigration and Consular Access Supplement in both English and Spanish language versions.
