Clinic Practice: Children’s Rights Advocacy: International and Domestic

In this clinical section, students will use a human rights framework to defend and strengthen the rights of children, both in the U.S. and abroad. Clinic students will learn about various human rights instruments impacting children, and will use these instruments to advocate for children and youth before a variety of international, national and local forums and stakeholders. Focus areas for cases and projects may include: children’s deprivation of liberty; children and migration; extreme sentencing of court-involved youth; protection of children’s rights during COVID-19; racial discrimination and children’s rights; U.S. ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child; and other issues identified by U.S. and international governmental and non-governmental partner organizations.
