International Human Rights Workshop

The International Human Rights Workshop (IHRW) partners with the Human Rights Center (HRC), under the supervision of the Director of the Sexual Violence Program, Kim Thuy Seelinger. Students conduct legal research to support projects related to refugee crises and the prosecution of sexual violence-related charges in international crimes cases. Students will have the opportunity to hone their legal research and writing skills and develop knowledge of domestic and international laws.

Time Commitment: IHRW participation requires a full-year commitment (Fall 2017 and Spring 2018). Students typically work on the project an average of five hours per week. In addition, students are required to attend mandatory meetings and trainings six times per semester.
