Lawyering on the Margins

The HCLU produced two movies about human rights lawyers who met at a meeting in Copenhagen.

Lawyering on the Margins” is a unique global gathering of lawyers working with marginalized groups, namely people who use drugs, sex workers, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT). It is a seminar for lawyers who are working towards social change, and believe that the law is an important means to achieving it. The HCLU's video advocacy team traveled to Copenhagen last year, to film about them. We produced a long and a short version of the film:
