Human Rights Advocacy at Home and Abroad: A discussion with Wasserstein Fellow Andrew Boyle

January 24 @ 12:45 pm - 1:30 pm

Public interest careers, especially in human rights, often require forging your own unique path. Andrew Boyle will discuss his career navigating between roles that span interests in domestic and international human rights and rule of law advocacy.

Andrew Boyle is currently Legal Officer at an International Tribunal, and until very recently, was Counsel in the Liberty & National Security Program of the Brennan Center for Justice, where, he focused, among other things, on emergency powers. He has held fellowships with the Truman National Security Project, the National Endowment for Democracy, and the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. He is also co-chair of the American Society for International Law’s (ASIL) International Criminal Law Interest Group, is a member of the Executive Committee of ASIL’s Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict, and has served as an observer at the Guantanamo Military Commissions.

Prior to joining the Brennan Center, Boyle prosecuted senior Khmer Rouge leaders on behalf of the United Nations for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. He has also served in the trial chambers of the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, where he worked on cases resulting from the 1994 genocide, completed a fellowship in the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program, and clerked for The Honorable Helene N. White of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Boyle graduated from UCLA School of Law and its Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy, where he was an articles editor for the Journal of International Law and Foreign Affairs.


The Wasserstein Public Interest Fellows Program brings outstanding public interest attorneys to Harvard Law School to counsel students about public service. The program recognizes exemplary lawyers who have distinguished themselves in public interest work and who can advise students who are considering similar career paths. All students are welcome and encouraged to learn more and meet one on one with our Wasserstein Fellows.
