This Summer Law School will allow you to experience the Human Rights Policy Legal Clinic, which normally takes a whole semester, condensed in a two-week intensive schedule. During the program, you will engage in interactive sessions with human rights experts from various fields and backgrounds (attorneys, judges, human rights activists), to develop your knowledge and relevant skills.

These skills will be applied over the course of the whole summer school when working in teams on analytical human rights policy projects, starting from defining and structuring the analyzed problem, researching and discussing it, and then presenting to others writing a policy paper and receiving feedback.
