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.

John Bassett Moore Society of International Law

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.
