The Humanitarian Law Project was established in 2011 as a collaborative project between UEA Law School and the British Red Cross. It gives law students the opportunity to develop presentations on International Humanitarian Law issues in small groups, which are delivered on behalf of the British Red Cross to Schools of study within UEA, and to local schools and colleges.
Students receive extensive training from the British Red Cross and are given comprehensive feedback following each presentation. In addition to developing an excellent understanding of International Humanitarian Law, participation in the project allows students to acquire a number of transferable skills including presentation skills and group work. Students are also given the opportunity to volunteer for the British Red Cross in Norwich. In the academic year 2012-13, students enrolled on the International Humanitarian and Refugee Law module are able to apply to participate in the project.
