New England School of Law Summer Program

New England Law School 2016

Every year since 2001, the Irish Centre for Human Rights has hosted a five-week-long summer programme in international human rights offered by a consortium of universities in the United States and led by the New England School of Law, Boston. As well as providing a venue for the programme, several members of the Centre’s faculty also deliver courses for the programme that are credited towards American Bar Association approved law degrees. Approximately 50 students from United States law schools attend the programme each year.

"Once again, the American law students participating in the summer program fell in love with the vibrant city of Galway, while immersing themselves in the study of international human rights law.   Guided by the dedicated faculty of the Irish Centre for Human Rights, they gained a fresh perspective and insight on many of the complex issues facing today's world.  The welcoming environment of NUI Galway and the kindness displayed uniformly by students, staff, and professors, left a warm and positive impression that will not soon be forgotten."
