The Program’s core elements include an annual two-week fact-finding project in another country, a human rights lecture and brown bag series, a summer internship program, and student research projects involving various human rights issues.
The students involved in the project participate in course work, independent research, planning and conducting the project, and related follow-up work.
The Crowley Program is administered by a fellow who is a law school graduate.
The Fellow, as a member of the adjunct faculty, will teach a seminar in human rights in preparation for the annual fact-finding project during the spring semester.
The additional responsibilities of the fellow are substantial: planning all substantive and logistical aspects of the fact-finding project, participating in the project, writing and publishing a post-project report, and day-to-day administration of the program, including running a year-round lecture series, advising students seeking international human rights internships and post-graduation employment, and coordination with the human rights community.
The fellowship is a 14-month position with the Center’s option to extend the position for an additional 10 months (2 years in total).
The Fellow’s salary is $55,000 for the first year and $60,000 for the second year and includes benefits.
