LOYOLA GENOCIDE JUSTICE CLINIC
(LAWH-5001) - 3 UNITS
The LGJC provides students hands-on legal experience in real-world, active cases and claims involving genocide and mass atrocities. Our substantive work primarily focuses on accountability for alleged perpetrators, and reparations to victims and survivors. Students may work with domestic or international NGOs, advocacy groups, prosecutors, litigators, or others pursuing accountability. This unique program of activity allows students the opportunity to work on cutting-edge legal issues while being exposed to standards of international legal practice.
First-time students enroll in one semester (the "Standard Track") during either the fall or spring. Students who wish to continue in the LGJC may subsequently enroll in one or more additional semester(s) (the "Advanced Track"). There is a mandatory pre-semester orientation.
Enrollment is competitive and by application only. Application information is available for registered 12Twenty users (search job postings) and at http://bit.ly/howtoclinics.
