How to Apply
The Kovler Project Against Torture is now accepting applications for its Fall 2021 Practicum: The Prohibition of Torture in International Law.
The practicum is a unique experiential learning opportunity which prepares students to advise the United Nations Committee against Torture on States’ compliance with their obligations under the Convention against Torture (CAT). Students will acquire the knowledge needed to participate in a multilateral framework for the purpose of assisting the Committee in the interactive dialogue with States on issues relevant to the CAT. This dialogue precedes the adoption of the Committee’s Concluding Observations and Recommendations. If university regulations permit, participation in this practicum includes a week in Geneva, Switzerland assisting the Committee against Torture. This practical experience is funded by the Washington College of Law with the support of the Kovler Endowment.
