BlueLaw Human Right and Inclusive Development Partner Janet Lord served as teaching faculty at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, National University of Ireland, Galway from 6-11 June 2011. The Summer School, sponsored by the Centre for Disability Law and Policy and co-hosted by the Harvard Law School Project on Disability, had as its theme the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities – From Paper to Action and included more than 50 participants from 18 countries in an intensive six day course to equip participants with the insights and skills necessary to translate the generalities of the treaty into tangible reform.
