The Hugh Wooding Law School Human Rights Law Clinic has begun for the 2014/2015 academic year.
Sixteen students from various jurisdictions throughout the Caribbean are participating this year. The students have already been divided into teams, each of which will execute a human rights project with a charitable impact on the community. The four major projects will focus on the issues of bullying, human trafficking, the law as it relates to LGBT discrimination and domestic violence respectively.
The students were trained by the Honourable Mr. Justice Boodoosingh on human rights education and advocacy, and will adapt these skills to deliver presentations at four secondary schools and four primary schools of their own choosing.
