Summer Research Interns Discuss Their Work with the Program on Law and Human Development

Summer 2011 Research Interns with the Program on Law and Human Development (PLHD) described their experiences conducting research on “Migration, Law and Human Development” at a law school event November 2.

One of the interns, 2L student Mike Hagerty, was video-conferenced in from London.

Three of the Interns (3L Manasi Raveendran in East London; 3L Rachel Odio in Chile and Peru; and 2L Michael Hagerty at the Arizona-Mexico border) developed case studies for PLHD that focused on the program’s theme of migration. Their studies explored the role of law and justice in advancing or impeding the goals of human development in these specific human migration contexts. In addition, 2L James Emanuel spent twelve weeks in Amman, Jordan, as the first Association of Volunteers in International Service – Notre Dame summer intern.

The PLHD program is a focal point for international legal studies at the Law School and serves as a forum for interdisciplinary service, research, teaching, and scholarship on the role of law and justice in the development of human persons and communities.
