Clinic students holding certificates and Rule of Law Initiative Morocco staff

The Rule of Law Initiative Morocco staff and Embassy Political Officer Craig Karp awarded students of the University of Mohammedia-Hassan II Law School certificates in honor of their achievements for successfully completing coursework on human rights issues and practical legal skills. The two-year Human Rights Clinical Legal Education program funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor draws to a close at the end of July. The program will be handed over to the Mohammedia law faculty administration.  Ensuring the sustainability of the first-ever clinical legal education program in Morocco has been a priority for Initiative staff, and the commitment of the law faculty to perpetuate the program under its own management and resources is a testament to the success of the program.
