About the Ateneo Human Rights Center
The Ateneo Human Rights Center was founded in July 1986, a few months after the historic EDSA Revolution drew attention to the indomitable might that is People Power. While the dictatorship infamous for human rights violations was overthrown through peaceful and bloodless means, it became obvious immediately thereafter that much work still had to be done in the field of human rights. AHRC was established as one of the first university-based institutions engaged in the promotion and protection of human rights in the country.

About the Ateneo Legal Services Center
The Ateneo Legal Services Center (ALSC) is a public interest center that provides professional, developmental, and ethical legal service to the poor and disadvantaged through a competently supervised student practice and clinical legal education program. Under the supervision of volunteer lawyers, law students assist in the handling of cases of indigent clients, and appear before trial courts under the Student Practice Rule. Students are provided with hands-on training through active participation in client interviews, consultations, research, preparation of court pleadings and motions, examination of witnesses, and trial advocacy. ALSC also supervises and monitors the Law School’s Apprenticeship Program, including the accreditation of participating law firms and government agencies, to ensure that the thrusts of the Law School are pursued in the training of the students.
