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. Strategic litigation in international law aims at advancing a particular idea or right that will have an impact in the development of international law. Students in this seminar will analyze international litigation as a tool for advancing human rights. The seminar will focus both on litigation and factors outside litigation that are necessary to create an environment where the desired legal change can take place. The class has a theoretical and a practical component. Students, therefore, will study cases and analyze scholarship related to impact litigation in international human rights law and will work on actual cases/projects handled by WCL’s Impact Litigation Project.
