Opening Ceremonies, July 11, 2011. Members of the diplomatic corps join the students and staff along with representatives of the sponsoring universities and NGOs to formally open the 2011 session.

Program Overview: This is a two-week intensive program providing comprehensive exposure to International Human Rights Law. As a rapidly developing interdisciplinary field, International Human Rights Law is gaining importance in an increasingly globalized and ever more interconnected world.  The program features intensive classroom instruction with classes conducted by practitioners, professors, and experts in the fields of international and human rights law.  Classroom instruction will be enhanced by experiential components such as workshops, field work and site visits. The course offers participants extensive interaction with practicing professionals who will share their perspectives.

University faculty are invited to attend with students from their university to enhance the experiential learning for their students and their own professional educational development.

Dates and attendance: The primary course dates are generally in July. There will be no program in 2012. 

Eligibility: This program is intended for university and law students, human rights activists, educators at all levels, lawyers, and representatives from all professions promoting with human rights.

Tuition: Tuition for 2011 will be US$2450, and will include housing (checking in July 8, checking out July 20), lunch and special occasion meals July 9-19. The optional international visits July 20-23 will be separately priced directly with those who register for those days.

Housing: The cost of tuition for North American participants will include accommodations at a hotel in Vilnius for the program dates. Those who wish to arrive earlier or stay later are welcome to do so at their own expense. Assistance with arrangements for additional nights will be available, but must made by separate email correspondence with the program to take advantage of the reduced rate offered to our program.

The language of instruction is English

Undergraduate Credit:  For students from North America, special arrangements have been made for 2 undergraduate university credits by a separate registration process for a transferable 2-credit elective course with the Elon Center for Public Affairs, Elon University in Elon North Carolina.


Vilnius, the charming capital of Lithuania, eagerly awaits course participants. Whether its a stroll through the romantic Old Town or the 21st century excitement of modern Vilnius, getting to know the city will be a delightful pleasure.
