Each year, a select group of human rights lawyers from around the world gathers at the University of Notre Dame to study international human rights law. CCHR has announced the opening of its academic program enrollment for 2014-15.
Through his work as chairman of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, Notre Dame Law Professor Paolo Carozza fought the system and won, working with the Paraguayan government to enact legal reforms to outlaw the enlistment of child soldiers.
“No other University of which I am aware makes this kind of investment in international human rights law on this scale. It is vital that Notre Dame have the resources needed to continue this expression of our mission of service to humanity.”
Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., President Emeritus
