From the Law Fellowship call:

FASPE Law examines the role played by German lawyers from 1933 to 1945, underscoring the reality that moral codes governing the practice of law can break down or be distorted with devastating consequences. Having demonstrated the power held by the legal profession in a modern society, FASPE addresses ethical issues now facing individual lawyers, the legal profession and its institutions at large. With the historical background in mind, FASPE Law Fellows are more committed and better positioned to confront contemporary ethical issues.

Each year, FASPE chooses 12 to 18 Law Fellows from law schools, as well as early-career lawyers, to spend two weeks in Berlin and Poland where they visit key historical sites and participate in daily seminars led by specialized faculty. The Law Fellows travel with the Business and Journalism Fellows, having the opportunity to exchange views over shared meals and in several interdisciplinary seminars.

FASPE Law Fellows consider topics such as:

  • the complicity of German lawyers in the design and execution of Nazi racial laws and genocidal policies
  • the difference between legal compliance and ethical behavior
  • ethical approaches to truth and disclosure in the adversarial process
  • the ethical challenges of ambition in professional development
  • ethics and government lawyering
  • ethics in the day-to-day practice of law
  • navigating multiple loyalties—to employers, clients, systems of justice, legal frameworks and more
  • tactics for addressing ethical issues within legal and governmental institutions
