The Human Rights Law Centre runs two short courses on International Human Rights Law each year, in addition to an Annual Summer School.
The International Human Rights Law Short Courses, run for either three or six months in duration and are intended for persons who are interested in gaining an in-depth understanding of international human rights standards and the international machinery of the United Nations , Council of Europe , the OAS and the African Union for implementing these standards and how this machinery works in practice.
Using its considerable experience and contacts, the Centre will give assistance to those who are seeking a human rights career in an Intergovernmental Organisation (IGO) or Non-governmental Organisation.
Persons working for NGOs or in government as well as graduate students, university teachers and legal and other professionals who would find such an understanding of value or interest would be suitable candidates. A law degree or other training in law is a help but by no means essential.
