The concept of human rights acknowledges that every single human being is entitled to enjoy his or her human rights without distinction as to race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinions, national or social origin, property, birth or another status. These rights are legally guaranteed by Human Rights Law, protecting individuals and groups against actions which interfere with fundamental freedoms and human dignity.

  1. FUNdamentally Amazing


    This course is my first online law course and I am glad I choose RostrumLegal for my initiation as well as this course. As a Human Rights Enthusiast I love the structure of this course. It is well-made enough to cover the basics and teach you a little more but it is made in a way without clutter to help you understand as well as enjoy the course. I would recommend this course to anyone especially budding lawyers.
