Whether in individual representation or as part of broader campaigns for reform, incorporating international norms and human rights mechanisms into our advocacy strategies can yield powerful results in advancing civil rights and social justice.

Separate panel discussions, led by some of the country’s most experienced practitioners, will focus on the United Nations human rights mechanisms, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, domestic litigation of international norms, local and state level implementation of human rights standards, and documenting human rights abuses.  

Attorneys engaged in public interest or criminal defense work, as well as advocates focused on civil rights and social justice issues, will gain a fundamental understanding of the relevance of the international human rights framework to protecting their clients and communities’ basic rights and freedoms.  

This training has been approved for over 10 Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit hours by the State Bar of California.

We hope you will join in this important discussion!  Please visit the website to Register Now and view the Provisional Agenda.
