IHRC Co-Chair Joseph Federici Featured in Rutgers News!

Joseph P. Federici ’08, general counsel at the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF), credits two international law classes in his last year at Rutgers–Camden with setting him on the path as a human rights advocate.
Now co-chair of the International Human Rights Committee of the American Bar Association’s Section of International Law, Federici has been living in Kabul since the fall of 2013.

At AUAF, Federici teaches classes in addition to serving as general counsel and monitoring and evaluation specialist. Since opening in 2006, AUAF has grown from an initial enrollment of 50 students to more than 1,700 full and part-time students in 2014.

Though classroom teaching is new to him since reaching Kabul, Federici coached rowing teams at the University of Delaware and the U.S. Naval Academy before launching his international career. He says that teaching law in an embattled nation is meaningful for a number of reasons.
