The International Human Rights Clinic, launched in 2011, gives students the opportunity to work on real cases of human rights violations that occur in several countries around the world.
The clinic is active year-round, over three terms. Students sign up for two consecutive terms (three units per term, for a total of 6 units). Clinic units also count towards the completion of the pro bono graduation requirement.
In 2012-2013, students enrolled in the International Human Rights Clinic worked under the supervision and direction of Prof. Romano on the following cases:
- United Nations Human Rights Committee, Karamo Fofana v. The Republic of Ecuador
- I/A Commission, Jamaica: The Cases of Mickey Hill, Anthony Nelson, Jevaughn Robinson, Lance Zab and Paul Wallace
- I/A Commission, Ecuador: Amicus Curiae in the Case of Veléz v. the Republic of Ecuador
- Ecuador: Position Paper on the Discriminatory Effects of the Ecuadorian Refugee I.D. System
