On the Job! Summer, human rights & gifted students

(On the Job! pays occasional notice to interesting intlaw job notices)

Our colleague David J. R. Frakt, who successfully represented child-soldier detainee Mohammed Jawad before the military commission at Guantánamo, writes to invite human rights profs' applications to work in a summer gifted-student program in which he already takes part.
David, who's an Associate Professor of Law at Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida, writes:

The Duke Talent Identification Program has asked me to help put together a program for gifted high school students on human rights advocacy and to help find a lead instructor for the course. The program will be two weeks long in early to mid-June and will be at Duke University. The lead instructor, ideally a law professor, will be paid approximately $2200, plus room, board and travel expenses. I teach another program for Duke TIP on International Humanitarian Law and War Crimes, and it is a wonderful organization with great kids. The program would be an introduction to human rights and human rights advocacy and the students would work as groups to develop a human rights campaign on an issue of their choosing. The instructor would be able to hire a couple of grad student/law student teaching assistants to assist.
