The session will begin with a general discussion of the Kirby Simon Summer Human Rights Fellowship and its application process. This will include a discussion of summer internship opportunities at international human rights and criminal courts, which have complicated and sometimes early application processes; students interested in these internships should plan to attend.

The discussion will be followed by a panel of 2021 summer fellows who will talk about their summer fellowship experiences, including presentations by:

Centro de Derechos Humanos Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez, Mexico

Juan Miramontes
