Through the International Human Rights Clinic – 3L Leadership Training with Advanced Seminar, students build new, more advanced skills necessary to become effective and thoughtful human rights advocates. Advanced students have the opportunity to focus on their leadership skills and explore additional approaches to human rights promotion. When appropriate, students travel to investigate abuses or pursue advocacy outside Cambridge, participate in sessions before intergovernmental bodies and arguments before courts, and help formulate policy to promote respect for human rights principles and the rule of law.
