WCL's Impact Litigation Project (ILP) seeks to promote the rule of law and democracy through international litigation and trainings on human rights.
The ILP works presenting or supporting cases in the following areas:
- Freedom of Expression
- Human Rights Defenders
- Due Process of Law
- Equality before the Law
- Women's Rights
- LGBTI Rights
- Indigenous Population
Each semester the ILP provides an opportunity for a selected group of LL.M. and JD students to work on international human rights litigation. For the Spring 2012, the ILP will offer a 2 credit seminar taught by Prof. Macarena S��ez in which students will work on cases before the Inter American System of Human Rights and will learn about strategic litigation.
Trainings on Human Rights
Each year the ILP coordinates along with the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights and other co- sponsoring institutions trainings for Latin American human rights defenders and government officials on the United Nations' Human Rights System and the Inter-American Human Rights System. The next training will take place from October 29 to November 9, 2012.
