Course

International Protection of Human Rights (Legal Clinic) 2023

Prof. Alice Riccardi



The course “International Protection of Human Rights Legal Clinic” is a legal clinic in the field of international human rights law. Students enrolled in the Clinic work in teams on projects aimed at promoting the respect for human rights. The projects vary each year, yet typically students may expect to work both on desk studies and legal aid projects. In the former capacity, in the past years the Clinic has prepared reports commissioned by international and national institutions on sensitive human rights issues (e.g. trafficking in human beings, conditions of detention in Libya and States’ responsibility along the so-called Balkan route). In the latter capacity, the Clinic has assisted lawyers appearing/directly appeared before national tribunals, the UN CEDAW, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, the ECtHR, the International Criminal Court and the UNSC Ombudsperson.

Students enrolled in the Clinic may expect the course to be organized in two phases. In the first phase, students get acquainted with the competences necessary to work on the assigned projects. Notably, lectures concern general issues of international human rights law (legal framework, methodology of research) and issues specific to the projects, including development of drafting/interview skills, usually taught by guest lecturers. In the second phase, the class works as a laboratory, during which drafts of reports/legal memoranda/court’s submissions prepared by the students are discussed on a weekly basis.
