Germany (2014) – Berlin
Discrimination, Conflict Resolution and Human Rights
This ABA-approved program will consist of courses, supplemental lectures and tours, including a bus tour of Berlin, a tour of Cecilienhof where the allies decided how to create a German democracy in 1945, and an English-speaking tour of the German Parliament. Students can also go on an optional tour of a German concentration camp.
One of the goals of the summer school is to afford participants the opportunity to better understand how conflicts and gross mistreatment of individuals and groups arise and develop; and how lawyers and the legal system can protect these individuals, promote justice and work towards preventing and resolving disputes in a peaceful way.
