The Human Rights Clinic has taken up land rights for the Arab minority, LGBT rights and more. It has represented refugees and migrant workers who claim compensation for inhumane and discriminatory treatment. The Clinic is highly respected across the full spectrum of Israeli society and, because of that, is in a unique position to handle these cases. It represented an eight-year-old, wheelchair-bound boy against the school he attends. Government and municipal regulations demand the school install an elevator, but it hasn’t and the child continues to be carried up and down stairs by a helper. With Clinic intervention, the court ordered the school to install an elevator. The Clinic also represented two orthodox gay women who were expelled from a seminar when their relationship was revealed. The women were reinstated, and the court ordered seminar officials and participants to refrain from disclosing personal information about them.
