Columbia-UNSW Law Human Rights Summer School in NYC

Our first UNSW Columbia human rights summer school program was an overwhelming success. Pictured here with her students, Justine Nolan, deputy director of the AHRCentre, lectured along side Risa Kaufman, the Executive Director, Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute from Columbia University. The course, Human Rights Law in Practice, was taught in collaboration with Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute and included guest lectures from leading U.S. and international human rights lawyers.

The course was taught through a comparative U.S./Australian lens, and included case studies on current human rights issues relevant to both countries.  It encouraged students to critically reflect on the efficacy of key institutions, actors and strategies to promote and protect human rights at home and abroad.
