In the early 1980’s, Richard Goldstone, a South African judge using his insider position to fight apartheid, met with Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C. The legendary civil rights reformer asked what Notre Dame could do to promote justice in South Africa.
Goldstone responded, “Educate our lawyers.”
The result of this exchange, the LL.M. Program in International Human Rights Law in the Center for Civil and Human Rights, recently welcomed back a remarkable group of its early alumni. The program expanded worldwide and has since educated more than 360 lawyers from at least 90 countries across the globe.
