Raymond Atuguba has spent much of his life combating issues surrounding poverty and human rights in his native country of Ghana. In 1997, Atuguba co-founded the Legal Resources Centre—a legal aid clinic for impoverished Ghanaians. He met Harvard Law School (HLS) Professor Lucie E. White (J.D. 1981) in 1999 during her trip to investigate social welfare issues in Sub-Saharan Africa. Their meeting and subsequent discussions led to the creation of a human-rights focused clinical course that Professor White has taught each year at HLS since 2001. Currently titled “Making Rights Real: The Ghana Project,” the course provides HLS students the opportunity “to gain first-hand experience working for economic rights, development, and social justice” in Ghana, often in conjunction with the Ghanaian Legal Resources Centre.
