Impact Litigation in Intl Human Rights: Theory & Practice (LAW-795LH-001)
There are no notices at this time.
This seminar is an opportunity for both LLM and JD students to analyze, understand, and gain experience in some basic aspects of strategic litigation in the area of international human rights. Students will work in three areas of international human rights: corruption and due process of law; rights and conditions of incarcerated people in Latin America; and discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity. The seminar will involve the analysis and work on real cases before the Inter American system of Human Rights or the United Nations’ body treaties and the presentation, when possible, of amici briefs or participation in written and oral presentations of the ILP’s own cases. Spanish is NOT required. Students interested in writing in Spanish, however, will have the opportunity to do so. The seminar will be evaluated with an oral presentation and the preparation of a substantive document for international litigation (amicus brief, petition, etc.).
