Advance Human Rights, Civil Liberties, and Social Justice

Vol. 39 No. 9


Sam Feinson, a second-year student at Seattle University School of Law, is the 2010–11 liaison to the Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities.

Founded at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, the Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities (IRR) has been the leading voice in the ABA for the protection and enhancement of human rights, civil rights, civil liberties, and social justice. Over the past 45 years, the Section’s membership and staff have performed critical work in developing ABA policy, filing amicus curiae briefs, and developing critical service initiatives. Throughout the year, opportunities arise for students to get involved through committee involvement, Section internships, and participation in substantive programs.
