I am a lawyer aged 50, of Nepal as an Advocate with PhD in law on conflict and human rights issues from Nepal in Feb 2018. I have been engaged in private law practice and filing public interest litigations at the Supreme Court of Nepal. The litigations may have national as well as global values. I want to earn more knowledge and experience from international studies so that I may be able to contribute more in the concerned field. I found this call for application but not sure whether I am eligible to apply.
