Walter Leitner International Human Rights Clinic: LGBT Rights in Africa and Asia
Clinic and Course Description: The Walter Leitner International Human Rights Clinic aims to train a new generation of human rights lawyers and to inspire results-oriented, practical human rights work throughout the world. The clinic works in partnership with non-governmental organizations and foreign law schools on international human rights projects, including mobile legal aid clinics, legal and policy analysis, submissions before human rights bodies, fact-finding and report writing and human rights trainings. The Spring 2014 clinic will have a particular focus on promoting the rights of LGBT persons given the significant legal and cultural limitations placed on sexual minorities in many parts of the world. The Spring 2014 clinic projects will partner with local organizations in Africa and Asia to protect the rights of LGBT persons in these regions. Students enrolled in the clinic will also participate in a companion weekly seminar that provides training in human rights advocacy skills and international human rights law with a particular focus on legal protections for sexual minorities.
