HIMALAYAN FIELD SCHOOL: DEVELOPMENT & HUMAN RIGHTS
The next Field School is scheduled for 2015.
The Himalayan Field School will not go ahead in January 2014 due to staffing considerations. However, the Faculty of Law intends to re-schedule this offshore Unit in 2015. Please check this website regularly in 2014 to receive updated relevant information.
The Sydney Centre for International Law offers an innovative and exciting new Himalayan Field School, conducted over two weeks in Nepal, to explore the fascinating and difficult problems of development and human rights confronting a developing country. The Field School is an elective unit for credit towards undergraduate or postgraduate law degrees at Sydney Law School or other Australian universities. Places are limited and students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible when applications open.
