Program description

Legal clinic is a special form of legal education, combining theory and practice, designed to teach not only knowledge, but also develop skills and instill values, and promote social justice. Legal clinics exist in many forms. One of them is a Policy legal clinic, where students do not help individual clients, but rather focus on existing legal problem from a policy perspective, usually by analysis of legal regulation and its practical application, identifying problems and deficiencies, and suggesting general measures, such as changes to legal regulation or other policy-oriented activities, to address the problem.

In summer of 2024, Palacký University, Faculty of Law, would like to invite you to experience the Second Installment of Human Rights Policy Legal Clinic Summer School. The Human Rights Policy Legal Clinic course, which normally takes a whole semester, will be condensed in two weeks intensive schedule of Summer School. Participants of the first Human Rights Policy Legal Clinic Summer School in 2023 appreciated that the course equipped them with necessary tools to identify deficiencies in human rights protection and to suggest measures and legal changes to address the problems. They valued the opportunity to meet wide variety of professionals with different backgrounds working on human rights in many diverse settings.
