Applying to Professor Babcock and Professor Ahmed’s International Human Rights Clinic
Students apply to the clinic through the law school clinic registration process, which is organized by the Registrar twice a year (typically in June and October). Prospective students must submit a c.v. and statement of interest indicating why they wish to take the clinic. Students from underrepresented communities and non-traditional backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The clinic also accepts applications from LLM students.
The clinic gives priority to students who have a demonstrated commitment to human rights or social justice work, whether in the United States or abroad. Foreign language proficiency is also helpful for certain projects. We are looking for students who are passionate, committed, and eager to learn. Students must be willing to work in teams. Travel is optional, and is not guaranteed. Travel will depend on the project’s needs and other factors.
