United Nations Committee Against Torture Project

Tuesday, January 26, 2010
12:15 PM - 01:45 PM

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, his Special Assistant and UN CAT Project Coordinator Jennifer de Laurentiis, student participants and professors will discuss this unique 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.

Presented by the United National Committee Against Torture Project
