To cultivate the next generation of human rights leaders, it is important to provide students with the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of human rights issues. Each year the Castan Centre facilitates student internships to a variety of organisations dedicated to the protection and advancement of human rights. Through these internship programs, Monash Law students have developed an excellent reputation for their knowledge and practical skills in the human rights arena.
