The University of California, Irvine School of Law invites applications for the position of Fellow in its International Justice Clinic (IJC). The principal aim of the fellowship is to provide an individual with mentorship and the opportunity to launch or deepen a career in human rights education and practice. The successful candidate will work on projects advancing the rights to freedom of opinion and expression under international human rights law, focusing in particular on contemporary problems of freedom of expression online. IJC supports the mandate of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the protection and promotion of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, currently held by Clinic Director David Kaye. As such, the Fellow will have an opportunity to help develop global strategies for internet freedom, shape thematic reports to the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council, conduct research and supervise projects related to freedom of expression online, and develop innovative approaches to advocacy for internet freedom through international mechanisms.
