Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation

Our 2022 Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation Summer School session is fully booked. No more applications can be accepted for the 2022 Lucerne Academy.

The Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation is a worldwide 2-week programme of coursework and hands-on learning for law students and legal practitioners held in the heart of Europe at the University of Lucerne, Faculty of Law, in Switzerland, in partnership with several distinguished international law schools. The main topic of this year’s Summer School is “Business and Human Rights”.

Participants are given the chance to learn the theoretical and trial skills necessary to prepare for a career in defending human rights. Students will not only learn about the field of human rights, but also about how to incorporate that knowledge into the actual work of defending human rights. Special focus will be placed on advocacy skills such as case assessment and oral argumentation.
