► The Leitner Center for International Law and Justice at Fordham Law School is pleased to announce the 2023 Summer Human Rights Institute (SHRI), a two-week certificate program that will provide a comprehensive introduction to the theory and application of international human rights law, June 12-23, 2023. The program is hybrid, and can be completed in-person or in an online-only format.
Designed for students and professionals from around the world, this immersive program enables individuals with limited time to gain an in-depth understanding of international human rights law and practice. Participants will take part in live daily lectures with Fordham Law professors, supplemented by additional materials, asynchronous lectures to be accessible at any time, and opportunities for discussions with members of New York’s prominent human rights community. Students will have opportunities for immersion into focus areas including (but not limited to): civil and political rights; economic, social and cultural rights; business and human rights; international justice; rights of marginalized and vulnerable groups; women’s and children’s rights. Additionally, off-campus learning opportunities will take place through program field trips.

For students interested in participating in-person that require a visa, the Summer Human Rights Institute satisfies the F-1 visa/status requirements, and Fordham is able to issue I-20s to support F-1 visa applications for this program. More information can be found here. Limited scholarships are available. The deadline for scholarship requests is April 14th.
