The School of Public Policy, Central European University announces application open for the fully funded Legal Empowerment Leadership Course in Budapest.

Around the world, more than five billion people are living outside the protection of the law. They are unfairly driven from their land, denied essential services, excluded from society, and intimidated by violence. Legal empowerment seeks to turn this tide. It is about enabling people to understand, use, and shape the law.

Moreover, the aim of the course is to cultivate a global cadre of leaders committed to legal empowerment, and who share a common understanding of the field, including history, methodology, and evidence. A faculty of respected practitioners and academics lead course participants in an in-depth exploration of key themes, including the conceptual framework of legal empowerment, community organizing and social movements, and the role of grassroots legal advocates in realizing systemic change. The participatory nature of the course also emphasizes peer-to-peer learning through small group work.
