Solidarity-based initiatives

Help those who most need help

During the summer of the third year, you can put into practice your legal and global governance knowledge in real development projects. You can travel to countries such as Bolivia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, or Costa Rica with the University Service for Development (SUD).

The programme combines practical training and social commitment. Your collaboration helps to improve the reality of poor and at-risk communities.

What kind of projects?

These include projects such as giving legal advice to refugees and migrants in Costa Rica in collaboration with UNHCR, defending indigenous women against male violence in Guatemala, and offering advice and collecting evidence for children’s courts in Guatemala. This is a unique personal and professional experience that is highly recommended for your growth and training at all levels.

“I’ve learnt about the desire and hopes of women to learn, women with the courage to fight for their rights despite the obstacles. Also, they really appreciated the fact that we dedicated a “little” of our time to them. It was beneficial for both: We taught them, but we also learnt from them”.

“I’m truly happy because we were able to go even further than foreseen, we could go wherever we wanted to. In addition to working strictly in the Courts, we were also able to help minors and adults in jails, in juvenile detention centres, camps for immigrant children along the Mexican border… It was a fulfilling experience”.
