We have completed the first week of training at our offices at the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) in Strasbourg, France.  This is the ninth year of our International Human Rights Training Program in conjunction with Regent University.  This year we had over 50 students from around the world attending this program.  Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft is one of our distinguished faculty members for this program. 

 

The focus of the program is international human rights and national security law.  We are training these lawyers to become future leaders in the struggle for religious liberty and international human rights.  In addition to Attorney General Ashcroft, our students will be exposed to the teachings of former Attorney General of Slovakia Daniel Lipsic, Regent University Dean Jeff Brauch, and the staff of the ECLJ as well as the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). 

 

We also had the privilege of having former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Daniel Ayalon as our guest with our students.  We are excited about the program and the progress our international offices are making. We are on the verge of a major victory for religious liberty in the Middle East, which I will be reporting on in the days ahead. 

 

This program gives us the opportunity to teach an entire generation of lawyers to defend religious liberty and human dignity.  This program is a fantastic experience for the students and gives them a unique perspective on important legal issues.  On Wednesday, we will be hosting key members of the European Parliament, who will also address our students.  By providing this type of perspective, our students gain insight that is not available in any other academic setting.  We are committed to training these future lawyers.  To see the photo gallery of our training events, please click here.
