Geneva for Human Rights’ trainers have been invited to share a lunch seminar at the Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation with a group of students, practitioners, civil servants and advocates.
The Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation is a worldwide 2-week programme of coursework and hands-on learning for law students and legal practitioners held in the heart of Europe at the University of Lucerne, Faculty of Law, in Switzerland, in partnership with several distinguished international law schools. The main topic of this year’s Summer School is “Business and Human Rights”.
Participants are given the chance to learn the theoretical and trial skills necessary to prepare for a career in defending human rights. Students will not only learn about the field of human rights, but also about how to incorporate that knowledge into the actual work of defending human rights. Special focus will be placed on advocacy skills such as case assessment and oral argumentation.
During Lunch Seminars the participants have the chance to learn from distinguished practitioners how to work with and implement human rights. The students will receive first-hand knowledge of current human rights issues and discuss possible solutions.
