LL.M. Program in International Human Rights Law


The Klau Center is proud to support this new speaker series, presented by Human Rights ND. The HumanRightsND speaker series brings human rights advocates, current master’s students in the LL.M. Program in International Human Rights Law, together with the wider Notre Dame community for informal presentations on current topics in regional human rights.


Ray-Yun Hong earned both her law degree and her LL.M. from the National Taiwan University in 2012 and 2018, respectively. Her academic focus has been on the legal history of East Asia, especially Taiwan’s democratic development. With her passions for feminism, she also went to Hokkaido University as a one-year exchange student to explore gender-related issues in Japan. After the “2014 Sunflower Movement” in Taiwan, Ms. Hong participated in the NGO Civil Movement for Constitutional Reform and assisted with a series of public events, including managing grassroots forums for civilians and serving as a grassroots leader in the national constitutional promotions forum.
