Session Abstract: This session will explore Street Law as a multi-dimensional platform for advancing social justice and the internalization of international human rights through education and leadership across a variety of jurisdictions and communities. We will examine Professor Efrain Marimon’s partnership between College of Education at Penn State University with the Street Law Program at Georgetown Law in Washington D.C. as well as Georgetown’s collaboration with the Street Law programme at the Centre for Comparative and Public Law at the University of Hong Kong. This session will also examine the role of Street Law in advancing international human rights into the domestic realm through the specific example of the Hong Kong-based Street Law program’s work towards demystifying and operationalizing the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD)
