The Leitner Center for International Law and Justice is pleased to once again accept applications for the Crowley Program in International Human Rights. Unique among American law schools, the Crowley Program enrolls students in an intensive one-year academic exploration of human rights theory, practice, and advocacy. This year, the Crowley Program will be merged with exciting programs within the Leitner Center’s Asia Law and Justice Program and the Africa Program. Applicants to the program will be selected through a competitive process. Those students selected as Crowley Scholars will then participate in projects that are developed in close connection with organizations and activists working in international human rights throughout the world. Over the past 16 years, students from the Crowley program have examined contemporary human rights issues in 15 countries in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
Students who will be Fordham Law School 2L students (Day or Evening) or 3L Evening students in Fall 2015 may apply to be Crowley Scholars by submitting a cover letter, resume, reference information, transcripts and a writing sample according to program guidelines. Applications will be evaluated based on each student’s demonstrated interest in international human rights, maturity, discipline, organizational skills, as well as academic performance. Applications must be submitted by Friday, July 17th.
