The Cambodian League For The Promotion And Defense of Human Rights

LICADHO is a non-political, non-governmental human rights organization with its head office in Phnom Penh, and sixteen additional offices in fourteen provinces. LICADHO is comprised of six advocacy departments: Children's Rights, Women's Rights, Monitoring, Medical, Human Rights Education and the Project Against Torture.

Since 1994, the McGill Faculty of Law has partnered with LICADHO in the creation of the International Human Rights Internship Program aimed at providing students with an opportunity to apply their legal education in a concrete setting and further develop a demonstrated interest and commitment to the defense of fundamental human rights. Partner NGOs provide students with practical work experience in human rights investigation, monitoring, and reporting. The internships also provide exposure to the operation and implementation of international legal human rights instruments and norms. The internship lasts 12 weeks and is now a fully credited course (6 credits).
