SOLM067 International Law on the Rights of the Child (Sem 1)

Module Description

Once peripheral to international and national law the international law on the rights of the child  are increasingly at the centre of national and international policy decisions concerning children. Competing claims of resources, other family members and the state place the international law on the rights of the child at the cutting edge of international law and national family law and human rights.

This course will introduce students to the institutions, standards, and case law which structure children's relationship with law.
