Video: Human Rights in the US CLE

In the past several years, legal aid, public defense and public interest attorneys have integrated human rights principles rooted in international law into the struggles of the individuals and community organizations they represent.   On December 12, 2014, the Portland chapter of the National Lawyers Guild presented a CLE program on Human Rights in the US: Incorporating International Law into Everyday Practice.

The speakers included:

  • Lauren E. Bartlett, Local Human Rights Lawyering Project Director, Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at American University Washington College of Law, Washington, D.C.
  • Gwynne Skinner, Associate Professor Law and director of the International Human and Refugee Rights Clinic, Williamette University College of Law.
  • Steven Goldberg, Member Portland Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, former chairperson of the National Lawyers Guild International Committee

This is the first part of that CLE program running approximately 1 hour 20 minutes. The program was approved for 5.5 Oregon CLE credits.

The materials for the program are posted at http:wp.me/PwqDA-8e.
