What is Ahead for Human Rights in Israel? A Celebration of 25 Years of the US-Israel Civil Liberties Law Fellows Program and Professor Herman Schwartz
Monday, March 22, 2010
04:00 PM - 06:00 PM
The US-Israel Civil Liberties Law Fellows, founded by Professor Herman Schwartz, has, over the past 25 years, graduated more than 50 Fellows who have gone on to form the backbone of the human rights bar in Israel. Graduates of the program have created key human rights organizations in Israel and hold important positions in government, academia and the NGO community. The Fellowship, run with the New Israel Fund, offers Israeli lawyers (both Palestinian and Jewish) a two year academic and professional experience including LLM study and professional development at WCL and a one year paid-placement in a human rights NGO in Israel. This program will celebrate the accomplishments of the Fellows and the program, and will look ahead at the next future of human rights in Israel with a panel of high level lawyers and activists discussing the future of human rights in Israel. The panel will be followed by a dinner.
