> Uncategorized > Online course “Human Rights Law” by a professor at the American University of Paris

Dear students, postgraduates and lecturers! Don’t pass the online course “Human Rights Law” by a professor at the American University of Paris.

The American University of Paris (AUP) is a private, independent, and accredited liberal arts university in Paris, France. Founded in 1962, the university is one of the oldest American institutions of higher education in Europe, and the first to be established in France.

Michelle Kuo is a writer, attorney, and professor. She is the author of Reading with Patrick, a memoir of mentoring and tutoring a former student in a rural Arkansas county jail. It was a runner-up for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the Goddard Riverside Stephan Russo Book Prize for Social Justice, and was the 2019 Washtenaw Reads at Ann Arbor District Library. As Pulitzer-Prize winning James Forman, Jr. and Arthur Evenchik write in The Atlantic, “Impassioned writing and hard-earned wisdom set the book apart. In all of the literature addressing education, race, poverty, and criminal justice, there has been nothing quite like Reading with Patrick.”

Michelle has worked to protect the rights of undocumented immigrants, assist asylum seekers, and defend incarcerated people. She has taught in prisons in the United States, France, and Taiwan. Michelle is interested in literacy, racial and socioeconomic equality, and abolitionist approaches towards prison and detention. She has published in The New York Review of Books, the New York Times, Public Books, Los Angeles Review of Books, The Point and other outlets; recently, she and her husband Albert Wu started “A Broad and Ample Road,” a weekly newsletter on culture and politics in Taiwan. She was an Associate Professor of History, Law, and Society at the American University of Paris, where she worked closely with college students on issues of social justice, and is a Visiting Professor at the National Taiwan University. She received her B.A and J.D. from Harvard University.

As Michelle puts it in the New York Times, her book is an “intimate story about the failure of the education and criminal justice systems and the legacy of slavery; about how literature is for everyone, how books connect people, and the hope that with enough openness and generosity we can do the hard work of knowing each other and ourselves.”

This course entitled “Human Rights Law” will take place on Thursdays at 4:00 to 5:20 P.M. Ukraine time, from April 13th to May 18th. There are a total of six classes.

Professor will take particular attention to three human rights issues: the right to asylum, the right to life (death penalty jurisprudence), and crimes against humanity. Participants will present on their own topics of interest as well as engage in mock trials.

After completing the course participants have an opportunity to get a certificate of participation!

Registration for the course will last until April 12, 2023 (inclusive) at the link.
