DIGNITY RIGHTS PRACTICUM: Each year, the DRP offers a Dignity Rights Practicum for JD and LLM students at Delaware Law School. Students work in groups or individually with partners to help develop theoretical arguments and practical strategies to advance dignity rights. Students talk about their experience in this video. Past classes have included partnerships with the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (working on UN reparations for cholera epidemic) and Center for Environmental Rights in Cape Town, South Africa.

"Being a part of the Dignity Rights Project and taking the practicum course has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had during law school thus far."

-Madison McGuirk, 2L, Delaware Law

“The Dignity Rights Project is an exciting and challenging experience because we get to discuss complex subjects with professors who value their students' thoughts and opinions.  We get to create a body of legal research that has the potential to directly help our partners in achieving their goals.”

-Kacee Benson, Evening Division, 2L

Please contact us if you would like to discuss opportunities for partnering with our students.
