Building a human rights framework

Legal Aid Chief Counsel Shawn Boehringer

Maryland Legal Aid Chief Council Shawn Boehringer has an article in the summer edition of the MIE Journal, “Building the Momentum for a Human Rights Framework in Legal Services Programs.” “[T]he human rights framework provides meaningful leadership development for newer staff, can energize their work, and give them a sense of purpose in their day-to-day advocacy,” Boehringer wrote. “These factors will hopefully lead to greater retention of talent and can build on the emerging presence of human rights curricula and programs at U.S. law schools.” Maryland Legal Aid recently adopted a human rights framework for its advocacy.
