The Center for Law and Global Justice is a focal point for
USF School of Law's commitment to international justice and legal
education with a global perspective. Founded in 1999, the Center's work
focuses on human rights protection, peace and democracy building, and
economic development, with an emphasis on corporate responsibility.
The Center generates student externships around the globe,
protects and enforces human rights through litigation and advocacy,
manages and participates in international rule of law programs in
developing nations, develops partnerships with world-class foreign law
schools, provides a forum for student scholarship, and nurtures an
environment where student-organized conferences and international
speakers explore topics relating to global justice.
The Center's global justice projects have included assisting
schools in developing nations, ending juvenile death penalty sentences,
defending death row inmates in the American South, and addressing the
underlying issues of migration caused by climate change. Students
contribute to global justice initiatives by participating in focused
internships and research projects.
Founded in 1999, the Center is interdisciplinary in nature,
often embarking on initiatives that meld law and anthropology, business,
economics, or political science.
