Human Rights Study Project Cowan Fellows
The project's mission is to further the study of law affecting the protection of basic rights in foreign countries. Each year a project team travels abroad to research human rights issues in a specific country and report their findings. Participants are selected by the prior year's student team based on applications submitted in the spring.

The J.B. Moore Society is a driving force in international law activities at the Law School. Each year, the Society hosts a symposium on topics such as the war on terror and corruption in foreign governments, as well as a lunch lecture series in which international law faculty and foreign graduate students present papers. The Society sponsors a Jessup International Law Moot Court team and coordinates with the Charlottesville office of the International Rescue Committee to help recently settled refugees.
