For 12 years, the DePaul College of Law has sent students to Chiapas, Mexico for a 10-day human rights practicum. 2011's itinerary was one of the most comprehensive the practicum has ever had. Sixteen students traveled all over the state of Chiapas to meet with community groups, nongovernmental organizations and indigenous people -- all using the law and their organizing power to fight for basic human rights and dignity in Mexico.
At the conclusion of each day, the students met with the trip’s faculty advisor, Professor Leonard Cavise, to discuss the day’s meetings and the role of human rights in Mexico. Many students drew parallels between their experiences and the type of legal work they hope to do in the United States.
Three students (Kelli Fennell, Katie Calhoun and Adrian Bleifuss Prados) would remain in Chiapas for the entire summer, doing legal work and organizing for the Centro de Derechos de la Mujer de Chiapas (Women’s Rights Center) and the Centro de Derechos Humanos Fray Bartolome de las Casas (Human Rights Center).
