Deadline: January 07, 2015

Harvard Law School is accepting applications for the 2014-15 Salzburg Lloyd N. Cutler Fellows Program. Five students will be selected to participate. The Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program brings together 50 of the nation’s top law students with leading academics, judges, and practitioners in the fields of private and public international law. The two-day program examines the most critical issues shaping today’s international law agenda and creates a network of women and men interested in careers in international practice and public service. Cutler Fellows are also invited to apply for scholarships to attend seminars in Salzburg, Austria, on topics relevant to their papers and professional interests.

At the heart of the program is the preparation by each Fellow of an article-length paper by graduation. At the conference itself, a preliminary draft of the paper or a 5-8 page executive summary will be circulated to other program participants. Each Fellow’s roject will receive feedback from other similarly-interested participants and law professors / practitioners.

On Day 1 (Friday, Feb. 20) Small group sessions consider each student paper, discussing and making suggestions to improve it.   Short talks, panels, and networking opportunities are interspersed, featuring eminent practitioners. A dinner for fellows and faculty will be held Friday evening.

On Day 2 (Saturday, Feb. 21) The morning is devoted to “Looking Beyond Law School.” The program will adjourn at noon.
