MDAC invites you to its "Mental Disability Law in Practice" summer university course taking place between 16 - 27 July 2012 at the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary.

Deadline for applications: 19 March 2012

The two-week applied legal practice course aims to strengthen the professional development of participants. Participants should be practising attorneys (members of the bar), lawyers holding a law degree and working on cases, or non-lawyers working in legal advocacy organisations, or in the human rights field.


"I feel I am equipped now with a tool I can use with confidence... 
...I feel really confident and I know many will give an ear from this day on."
Robinah Nakanwagi from Uganda, Summer School participant 2010

We encourage people with disabilities to apply; especially welcome are participants with experience of intellectual or psychosocial disabilities. The course focuses on experiences from Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and India. While focusing on real-life application of rights, the course will also explore interdisciplinary perspectives from sociology, social policy, and psychology. The course allows participants to spend two weeks with MDAC staff and associated faculty members, with a view to participants preparing test cases to advance domestic (and international) human rights jurisprudence.

Financial aid and tuition waiver are available.
