Harrington, Eden Credits: 10 Pass/Fail No scheduled meeting time. Registration Information This course is restricted to upper division students only. Internship – APPLICATION REQUIRED. Contact the instructor for information about applying. This clinical internship gives students the opportunity to work full-time with courts, international institutions, and nongovernmental organizations outside the U.S. Field placements involve work on international law-related matters and have typically focused on human rights. Interns immerse themselves in practice, developing their professional skills and studying the role of international lawyers and legal institutions. The course addresses topics relevant to public service lawyering in international settings, including professionalism, ethics, advocacy, access to justice, the legal profession, and the intersection of law and policy. Placement supervisors are experienced attorneys who expose students to the legal activities of their offices, oversee varied and demanding assignments, and provide regular feedback on student performance. It is possible for a student to arrange an independent placement by consulting with the instructor, but most students work in internships sponsored by the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice: • International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia; The Hague, The Netherlands • Inter-American Court for Human Rights; San Jose, Costa Rica • European Court of Justice; Luxembourg • Extraordinary Chambers of the Court of Cambodia Each placement must be approved by the instructor prior to registration. Students are required to intern for 550 hours and may not receive a salary for their internship work. Students are required to complete a number of written assignments and maintain close contact with the instructor during the internship. Students must enroll in both the eight and two credit hour sections. Interested students should contact the Rapoport Center or email the instructor
