Summer Program 2017

O’Neill Institute Health Rights Litigation Intensive

June 26-30, 2017

This one-week intensive course offers participants an opportunity to develop specialist-level knowledge in litigating health-related rights at the national, regional, and international levels. The 2017 course will include a special focus on regulation of private actors, but will also cover broader topics addressed in previous years. In addition to the moot court competition, we are pleased to add a session and group exercise on fundraising in 2017.
