As part of a five-year project to explore the relationship between economic inequality and human rights, the Rapoport Center is offering summer fellowships in 2017 for UT law and graduate students to intern with organizations based in the Global South working on issues of natural resource governance, human rights, and inequality.
The Human Rights Clinic, established through the Rapoport Center, brings together an interdisciplinary group of law and graduate students in a course that incorporates both classroom study and hands-on participation in human rights projects and cases.
Fellowships are available for law and graduate students to work at the Rapoport Center over the summer and help with projects, publications, events, and research. Summer fellows advance the Center's mission and ensure that Center projects reflect and incorporate the diverse perspectives and expertise of a multidisciplinary UT academic community.
The Rapoport Center sponsors collaborative working groups initiated by our affiliated faculty that research and explore various human rights topics. These groups are comprised of faculty and students from diverse disciplines across campus. We invite you to join a working group and become part of the conversation!
