The Columbia Human Rights Law Review
(HRLR) is one of the oldest and the most recognized human rights journals in the world. Established in 1967, the HRLR is run by students at Columbia University School of Law. The HRLR is dedicated to the analysis and discussion of human rights and civil liberties under both domestic and international law.

The Columbia Human Rights Law Review produces two publications. The HRLR is an academic journal that publishes scholarly articles written by professors, practitioners and students. Our subscribers are individuals, institutions, human rights organizations and libraries in over forty countries. Those who have published in the HRLR include Marvin E. Frankel, Arthur C. Helton, Louis Henkin, Michael Posner, Antônio Augusto Cancado Trindade, and Bishop Desmond Tutu.

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.
