Intl Human Rights & Justice Workshop - APPLICATION REQUIRED. Application and/or instructions on how to apply for this workshop can be accessed on the web: http://www.utexas.edu/law/sao/academics/apps.html.

Description
This seminar is an interdisciplinary speaker-based workshop on international human rights law.  We will read academic papers and hear them presented by their authors.  Roughly half of the class weeks will involve outside speaker presentations.  The other classes will involve discussions of background readings on international human rights and class discussions of the papers to be presented by outside speakers.  Students will be expected to write short, critical reaction papers for several of the papers presented, and to submit a final writing project.  Topics range from human rights and international adoption to Afro-descendant rights in Latin America.

The seminar is open to application for all rising 2Ls and 3Ls and non-law grad students.  It is limited to students who have taken or are taking courses at the undergraduate, graduate or professional level in international human rights, public international law or international relations.  Appropriate experience might also substitute for the background course requirements.  Students must receive the professor's approval to enroll in the class.  To apply to enroll, please send a short (300 words, one-page) statement explaining your background and interest in human rights, including any international law courses you have taken, and a one-page resume, to Sarah Cline at scline@law.utexas.edu.
