The International Human Rights Clinic, launched in 2011, gives students the opportunity to work on real cases of human rights violations that occur in several countries around the world.
The clinic is directed by Professor Cesare Romano.
The clinic is active year-round, over three terms. Students sign up for two consecutive terms (two units per term). Only six students are able to participate in the clinic per term.
