National Institute of Human Rights (NIHR)
The NIHR has been established at the NLSIU in 1998 recognising the growing demands of the human rights education and research at the national level. During 1991-1998, it functioned under the name of Human Rights Centre.
The NIHR has three main wings :
a) The Academy;
b) Research and Publication; and
c) Documentation Centre.
The NIHR also conducts training programmes for judicial officers in collaboration with National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). Current programmes include a study on the status of human rights education and looking at disability rights. The NIHR has recently published a Handbook for Judicial Officers in collaboration with the NHRC.
The Centre also offers a Post-Graduate Diploma in Human Rights Law through distance education mode.
