The FLD experience

The Masters’ multidisciplinary perspectives on Human Rights enabled me to acquire a solid theoretical and practical background, crucial for field work during my internship in an African NGO
Through the great variety of courses, taught both in English and French, and numerous practical experiences (legal clinics, MOOT competitions, Masters’ Week, job dating) I had the opportunity to exchange and learn, while developing my professional project. The academic and administrative team was always available and keen in supporting us over the year, thus offering the ideal framework for learning.
