The programme consists of five Saturday or Sunday modules spread over 3 months. You can attend the whole programme, a combination of modules or one individual module.

Practical skills in thinking through how you would tackle real life cases

The confidence to advise pro bono and fee paying clients on legal issues to do with international development and business and human rights

How you learn

Each topic will be introduced with a presentation and time for questions and discussions.
