* The International University College of Turin (IUC) was established in 2006 for the interdisciplinary and comparative study of law, economics and finance, in response to the clear lack of a transnational set of normative principles capable of controlling economic processes. The IUC offers a one-year Master of Laws (LLM). The program specifically looks to engage students and young scholars from all over the world with special emphasis on the periphery, or 'global south', with leading figures in economics, law and the humanities. The IUC, as an international research institute formally authorized by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), also actively fosters a robust research-based agenda seeking innovative collaboration and research by a diverse community of scholars and practitioners. The IUC emphasizes the relationship between theory and practice, favouring actual experience and empirical findings over the black letter law. Given this emphasis, in the academic year of 2011/2012 the IUC established the Migrants’ Rights Clinic (former Human Rights and Migration Law Clinic) together with its partners (see for more
information about the clinical program: http://www.iuctorino.it/studies/clinical-education/). Fundamental part of this program is the legal advice/support given by students, supervised by faculty and local lawyers, to migrants/refugees in the local area of Turin. In addition, the Migrants’ Rights Clinic also includes practical activities related to strategic litigation (including case involvements presented to the European Court of Human Rights), experiential research and advocacy in the area of International, European and Italian human rights, asylum and migration law.
