During the 2011 summer, for the fifth consecutive year, the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School (HRP) will offer a summer program of internships with prominent human rights NGOs in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Participants in this summer program are placed with one of the participating human rights NGOs for internships of ten (10) weeks (*subject to revision). NGO placements are based as best as possible on preferences indicated by students in their applications. All participants receive summer fellowship funding from HRP (to complement SPIF funding).

Students participating in the summer program must also take a one-credit HLS seminar over the course of the summer. The seminar seeks to complement and enrich their work experience. The seminar, Human Rights Practice in Argentina and Latin America, will be taught by Clinical Professor James Cavallaro and Lecturer Stephanie Erin Brewer, and will meet at least six times over the summer.
To participate in the course, students must be passively fluent in Spanish (that is, able to understand fully both spoken and written Spanish). Levels of Spanish required for the internships vary, but all NGOs will require interns to read documents in Spanish and to be able to converse sufficiently to discuss work assignments. Interns may be asked to draft documents in Spanish on the understanding that native speakers will edit and correct final products (unless the intern is fully fluent or a native speaker of Spanish).
