Robert L. Bernstein International Human Rights Symposium
Each spring, the Bernstein Fellowship Program convenes a symposium designed to promote thoughtful, creative discourse on international human rights. Past and current Bernstein and Robina fellows return to Yale Law School to speak with students and each other about the challenges of human rights advocacy, and leading activists and scholars in the field join in discussions exploring effective approaches to the defense of human rights.
