International human rights law protects against humanitarian abuse by state actors. Lawyers around the world work to safeguard those rights through litigation and advocacy. Join three of those experts for BJIL’s panel on Careers in International Human Rights Law.
Panelists include Professor Kate Jastram, Professor Beth Van Schaack, and Professor Asa Solway. Prof. Jastram is an expert in international displacement and previously served as the Legal Advisor to the UN High Commission for Refugees. Prof. Van Schaack is an expert on international criminal courts and served as the Deputy Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues. Prof. Solway is an expert in human rights abuses against minorities peoples and is the former Senior Legal Advisor to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Together, they will offer a holistic vision of careers in the field, the practical work of international human rights law, the values and skills demanded by the profession, and how to get started.
This is a hybrid event. You may attend in person or over zoom.
