Uganda Study Abroad Program in International Human Rights & the Rule of Law
June 2 – June 28, 2013
Tremendous challenges confront our world today. And as the world continues to grow smaller and more connected, our awareness and concern for global justice issues grows stronger.
Regent Law’s Uganda Study Abroad Program in International Human Rights and the Rule of Law is for students who want to engage in an informed relationship with the people and legal challenges of East Africa.
The program is based in Uganda. Uganda provides a rich learning environment for students who are passionate about global justice and are interested in understanding how legal systems work in East Africa. In Uganda, fights against corruption and for the establishment of the rule of law are vital. Struggles for human rights and legal empowerment are critical.
The program will run from June 2 – 28, 2013. Students will live and study at Uganda Christian University in Mukono, Uganda, and will participate in educational trips to the capital city of Kampala just 15 miles away. International legal experiences include visits to an International Justice Mission (IJM) branch office, the Uganda Supreme Court and Constitutional Court, the International Crimes Division of the High Court of Uganda, the Uganda Human Rights Commission and Human Rights Tribunal, and a local justice experience in Mukono.
We invite participants from other law schools to enroll. The ABA-approved program will offer fully accredited courses and provide students with an unparalleled opportunity to study international human rights and rule of law issues from a Christian perspective.
