I have been interested in participating in the Kovler Project since I was a prospective student of WCL. In both my personal and professional lives, I have befriended many refugees, asylum seekers, and survivors of torture and was motivated to pursue international human rights work after hearing their stories. As a student interested in the prohibition against torture and international human rights law, the Kovler Project’s anti-torture work is an extremely valuable opportunity that will allow me to gain skills and insight into the world of advocacy in which I hope to work in the future.
Having the opportunity to conduct important, timely research and participate in U.N. Committee Against Torture sessions will be incredibly valuable for my future career interests. The Kovler Project will allow me to familiarize myself with international treaty bodies, network with international lawyers, and developers my legal writing skills. My experiences with the Kovler Project will help me work towards my career interests in national security and terrorism- with which I would like to advocate against the use of torture in national security and military detention settings.
