Critical Global Classroom

The Critical Global Classroom (CGC) is a unique study-abroad program in law, policy and social justice activism.

The CGC was offered in partnership with the University of Baltimore School of Law and the Interamericana University School of Law in the years 2003, 2004 and 2006, and it journeyed through countries such as Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and South Africa. CGC graduates earned up to eight academic credits through a diversified menu of academic activities. The CGC curriculum also included the LatCrit Colloquium on International and Comparative Law, enabling close interaction among students and scholars through the Colloquium-related activities.

Presently, the CGC is collaborating with De Paul University’s "Law & Critical Social Justice" Summer Study Abroad Program in Berlin. This program features two courses: 1) "Intersectionality & Human Rights," with an emphasis on refugees/asylum law and police/state violence against migrants; and 2) "History, Memory & Law," with a focus on public history about three modules--colonialism, genocide, and forced labor.
