Room 100

WCL's UN Committee against Torture (UN CAT) Project is a one-of-a-kind experiential learning opportunity for selected upper-level students to deepen their knowledge of international human rights law and partake in the Project's field component: accompanying UN CAT Chair Dean Claudio Grossman to the Committee's official meetings in Geneva, Switzerland, in November. The Dean, the UN CAT Project Coordinator, WCL Professors, and student participants will discuss this extraordinary opportunity, which includes a for-credit seminar with specialized readings, instruction and research on the prohibition of torture, and information on how to apply to the Project.

Come learn about the remarkable UN CAT Project, as well as how to apply this spring for the fall 2009 Project. Panelists Dean Claudio Grossman (Chair of the United Nations Committee against Torture), UN CAT Project Coordinator Jennifer de Laurentiis, Professors Jamie Raskin and Darren Hutchinson, and student participants Alexandra Bradley, Anna Cabot, Gillian Chadwick, Amalia Greenberg, J. Hess and Solomon Shinerock, will discuss the UN CAT Project as well as the upcoming application process.
