Over 400 people from more than 70 countries applied to this one-of-a-kind course at the Central European University (CEU) for the past three years. The course has received the largest number of applicants for any course held at CEU and the course evaluations were among the highest they’ve seen. We are looking forward to meeting this demand once again and putting together an equally promising course this year.
Under the theme Designing Effective Legal Empowerment Programs , a faculty of respected practitioners and academics will lead course participants in an in-depth exploration of key subject areas, including the conceptual framework of legal empowerment, community organizing and social movements, and the role of grassroots legal advocates in realizing systemic change.
The participatory course design will emphasize peer-to-peer learning through small group work, where each participant will have a chance to present and seek feedback on challenges or opportunities they encounter in their work.
The course, which will run from December 2nd till December 7th, is co-sponsored by Central European University’s School of Public Policy, the Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights at New York University School of Law, the Global Legal Empowerment Network, Namati, and the Open Society Justice Initiative.
We invited applications from practitioners, policy makers, donors, and researchers. Scholarships are available to a limited number of applicants on a competitive basis.
The deadline to apply was August 12. Registration is now closed.
