Offer: OSISA and OSF Disability Rights Scholarship Program (LLM) from Nepal and select African and Latin American countries

The Disability Rights Scholarship Program will offer up to 20 awards to individuals from Nepal and select countries in Africa and Latin America for LLM study beginning in fall 2012. The program aims to advance the rights of persons with disabilities, and through legal channels, help overcome the effect of exclusionary practices, so that persons with disabilities achieve a state of full and effective participation and inclusion in society.

The program intends to provide disability rights advocates and lawyers with the necessary expertise to develop new legislation, jurisprudence, impact litigation, and scholarship, thereby taking advantage of the innovations and opportunities offered by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The CRPD, which entered into force in May 2008), presents a paradigm shift in the field of disability rights and provides a framework for developing innovative legal arguments.

With the knowledge and networks gained in the program, we expect that Fellows will have the ability to challenge rights violations in their home countries by drafting enforceable legislation consistent with the CRPD and applying legal remedies implied in the Convention to address injustices. Alumni will also be qualified to train and mentor new lawyers of disability rights through clinical programs.
