CHRC 2013 Summer Intern
Jack completed his internship with the CHRC in December 2013 after being with the CHRC throught the summer and fall. During his time at the Center, Jack was a rising fourth-year student at Loyola, majoring in Philosophy (Social Justice) and International Studies, with minors in Political Science and Gender Studies. While at Loyola he had the opportunity to focus some of his research for various courses on children and family issues, such as access to healthcare, sex education, and maternity leave. While participating in a pre-law certification program at the University of Amsterdam during a semester abroad, Jack was able to focus on conflict studies and EU law, which he hopes will be useful while working with CHRC.
As an advocate of human rights for all individuals, Jack recognizes the specific importance of advocating for the rights of children, often the most vulnerable members of our communities. Jack is very excited to be interning with CHRC and hopes to learn a great deal about the specific issues tackled by CHRC and also hopes to bring something new to the Center. As a pre-law student, Jack enjoys researching and studying both domestic and international law regarding the human rights of children. He is excited to help the Center by playing an important role in research as well as the conversations and advocacy work that come about after research has been completed.
