Future lawyers study a special course on the child rights
About 15 students of Tashkent State Law University visited UNICEF Office in Uzbekistan to interact with international experts and staff of UNICEF. These students of law are undertaking the special course on Child Rights in their University.
Since 2015, UNICEF has supported the Tashkent State Law University to include the course on the child rights in the curriculum of law students. The course gives students an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills on children's rights, and allows them to understand how these rights function in practice.
"I am especially pleased to meet with the future judges, prosecutors and lawyers, with whom we may be working soon. I very much hope that you will use the knowledge gained in the course of studying the ‘Child Rights’ course in your professional work", said Afshin Parsi, Deputy Representative welcoming young people.
Ursina Veidkun, UNICEF expert shared her international experience in the field of justice for children. She stressed the importance of specialization in the management of cases of minors, as well as social work in the justice system.
Students also got an insight of UNICEF’s activities in Uzbekistan.
"It has become a good tradition to conduct practical interactions on the rights of the child in the UNICEF Country Office. This is very useful and interesting for our students. We hope that we will continue our cooperation in the future ", said Professor Gavkhar Yuldasheva, lecturer at the Department of International Public Law.
