Confronting Structural Violence:
Law Teaching Guides

CLIHHR’s Law Teaching Guides help professors incorporate today’s legal issues into the courses they teach, tapping into students’ passions while training them to recognize and respond to structural violence and human and civil rights violations across practice areas. The 10 Law Teaching Guides are grounded in cases many professors already teach and include learning objectives, questions that can be used for in-class discussion or exams, and useful background. The Law Teaching Guides serve as a flexible resource professors can easily adapt for introductory survey courses or upper-level seminars to plan or update syllabi, individual lessons, exams and more.

Confronting Structural Violence: Law Teaching Guides is distributed by the Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights (CLIHHR) at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

The Cardozo Law Institute in
Holocaust and Human Rights

The Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights (CLIHHR, pronounced 'clear') is a leading global center for the study, teaching, and promotion of human rights. CLIHHR strengthens laws, norms, and institutions to prevent mass atrocities, protect affected populations, and rebuild societies in the wake of atrocities. Originally founded in 2005 by Professor Richard Weisberg, CLIHHR has matured into an institute and human rights clinic with practical tools. Today, CLIHHR is led by Professor Jocelyn Getgen Kestenbaum and responds to the growing global need for scholarly, policy, and advocacy work to prevent atrocities and promote human security.
