Our Vision

The Vision of the SDP-Keck Human Rights Clinic is to create access to forensic evaluations for all immigrants seeking asylum who cannot afford to pay a private practice evaluator. As prescribed in the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics, the SDP-Keck Human Rights Clinic is rooted in social justice, service, and the dignity and worth of the person.
