Chamonix-Geneva Program in International Human Rights Law

Seton Hall University School of Law will again be offering its winter intersession program in Chamonix, France, and Geneva, Switzerland. The program consists of a two-credit course on Human Rights and the Family, and an optional, one-credit course on Health and Human Rights. Faculty will combine lectures in Chamonix with visits and briefings at a variety of international human rights organizations located in Geneva.

The Human Rights and the Family course will examine how international human rights law protects individual’s right to a family and regulates family formation, norms, and behaviors. The optional course on Health as a Human Right will explore the legal and public policy implications of the Constitution of the World Health Organization at both the international and national levels. Both courses will include lectures, discussion, group exercises, and international organization briefings. The program is open to J.D. and LL.M students.
