London Program Course Offered for Fall 2020

Pepperdine Caruso Law will offer the London Program course Human Rights for second and third year students in the fall semester:

LAW 1972 – Human Rights (Thursday, 8:30 – 10:30am) with Professor Courtenay Barklem

This course will address certain rights that should be afforded all people in order to assure that they are treated as "humans," both in time of peace and war. Those rights may include human rights such as free speech, the right to worship, and the right to live as and where one wishes; political rights, such as the right to vote and to fair treatment in the courts; economic rights, such as the right to a minimum standard of living, and various other topics, such as torture and capital punishment.

Professor Barklem is called to the bar in England and California. He has a commercial practice in arbitration and construction disputes. He has also carried out numerous missions in-country, during his five years as the Human Rights Advisor to the Law Society of England and Wales. He has also acted as a consultant on UK Ministry of Justice and Foreign Office projects. He has worked on a number of high profile international human rights cases and has developed extensive experience in legal development and international law reform.
