Our Purpose

The purpose of the Spring Break trip is to provide an opportunity for our students to view their law degree through a human rights lens. Students will engage in the various discussions and activities planned each year as well as engage with the culture while visiting historical sights.

Our methodology is similar to that as described in the books, When Helping Hurts, Toxic Charity, and Walking with the Poor. We seek to serve the needs of developing countries where invitations have graciously been extended. Our purpose is to help nations' top leaders implement structural changes to their judicial process in order to secure greater access to justice for citizens. We hope students passionate about a career in International Human Rights, or something under the umbrella of Global Justice, will join this trip and gain invaluable resources and tools from the experience to carry forward in their legal careers.
