Lars Waldorf

Senior Lecturer, Centre for Applied Human Rights

York Law School

I joined York Law School in 2009 having taught previously at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies (University of London), the New School and Harvard College. I was a Visiting Fellow at Harvard Law School’s Human Rights Program in 2004. Before that, I ran Human Rights Watch’s field office in Rwanda (2002-04) and worked as a journalist reporting on genocide trials at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (2001). In my first career, I practiced as a civil rights and poverty lawyer in the US (1990-2000), including five years as a senior trial attorney with the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
