This seminar is part of American University’s Impact Litigation Project (ILP). 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. At the same time, students will be assigned a case/project related to the work of the Impact Litigation Project.
