In 2013, Georgetown Law established the Human Rights Institute Dash-Muse Teaching Fellowship. The Dash-Muse Teaching Fellow works closely with HRI leadership to conceptualize and implement all Institute programs.  Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: assisting with the Institute’s Fact-Finding Practicum as a teaching fellow; managing the Institute’s Human Rights Associates Program; supporting the campus human rights community; providing academic and career advice to students interested in human rights; engaging with the Institute’s human rights alumni network; maintaining the Institute’s strong ties to human rights practitioners; organizing human rights conferences and other events; and supporting the Institute’s efforts to create human rights fellowship opportunities for graduating students.

The Fellow also participates in a year-long clinical law pedagogy course led by the nation’s leading law school clinical professors. The Fellow also writes and produces human rights-related scholarship and, upon completion of the fellowship term, is awarded an LL.M. degree in Advocacy.
