A NEW HUMAN RIGHTS SEMINAR debuted this year. Taught by Edward Rubin, Theodore K. Warner, Jr. Professor of Law, and Assistant Dean Susan Feathers, the seminar gave students many opportunities to gain practical experience in the field. For example, students created an advise and referral clinic with Amnesty International and Richard Atkins, Public Service program advisory board member. They also conducted legal research for the International Labor Defense Fund and assisted the Center for Constitutional Rights with case theory development on Alien Tort Claims Act lawsuits.
The seminar’s unique blend of theoretical readings and field work experience provided students with a rare opportunity to explore human rights jurisprudence in all of its dimensions: historical, sociological, philosophical and practical.
