Student Opportunities Around the World

The Center for Law and Global Justice, with the support of individuals, foundations, and governments, develops and underwrites projects that serve global communities and provide invaluable learning experiences for students.

Externships and volunteer opportunities have brought students to the U.S. Agency for International Development in Vietnam, international business firms in China, private and public law placements in Argentina, organizations dedicated to the prevention of torture in India, the Dominican Republic to study discrimination experienced by Haitian migrants, and numerous other NGOs, nonprofit agencies, and law firms around the world. Students that participate in the Frank C. Newman International Human Rights Law Clinic prepare written and oral statements that are presented to the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women in New York City and the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva, Switzerland, while students that participate in the Keta Taylor Colby Death Penalty Project travel to the American South to defend death-row inmates. The center also offers courses, such as the study of genocide and the prosecution of the Khmer Rouge in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and study abroad opportunities in Europe and Asia.

"My co-intern and I got to meet people intimately affected by and actively involved in El Salvador's civil war. The diverse viewpoints we heard during our meetings with lawyers, judges, guerrillas, professors, and laypeople really gave us a sense of the country's many crises."
