The Azerbaijan Young Lawyer's Union (AYLU) and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (RWI) have announced a summer school program from August 9-20, 2004, designed especially for advanced undergraduate or recent graduates to expand their knowledge of human rights law and policy within the context of the European Convention on Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.  Specifically, particular attention will be given to the various international human rights issues and procedures to which Azerbaijan is subject.  Participants from international organizations or NGOs are also welcome.


The twelve-day course will combine case studies with seminars led by both national experts and those from the Raoul Wallenberg Institute.  Around twenty-five participants will be accepted and expected to attend the entire duration of the program.  The last day will be devoted to a moot court competition using European Human Rights case law.   

Deadline for application is July 15, 2004. For more information, please contact:
