The Center for Applied Human Rights at Vermont Law School provides opportunities for research and advocacy training on cutting-edge issues in human rights law and policy. The Center also serves as a focal point for human rights-related events at the law school.
Students who work as Human Rights Fellows hone their skills and deepen their understanding of international law as they engage in projects for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and inter-governmental organizations (IGOs) under the supervision of
Professor Stephanie Farrior. Through hands-on learning experience, students gain exposure to real-world issues of human rights theory and practice, interact directly with international organizations and grassroots rights advocates, and build their professional network.
