Lawyers take cause to Nepal

A group of law students will climb the dizzying heights of legal extra curricular activities next summer as they travel to Nepal to help address problems with socio-economic development in the region.

The Sydney Centre for International Law at the University of Sydney is offering a Himalayan Field School, conducted over two weeks inside Nepal, so students can explore the problems of development and human rights confronting developing countries.

Students will explore the transition from armed conflict to peace after Maoist insurgency and the end of monarchy in Nepal, as well as minority rights, including of “tribals” and “dalits” in the caste system.

Undergraduate and post graduate students will be exposed to the interaction between local disputes over natural resources, human displacement caused by development, and environmental protection.

The Field School, to be held in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Melamchi, will be conducted with the Kathmandu School of Law, a university in Nepal.
