FASPE Summer Law Fellowship
DEADLINE EXTENDED to JANUARY 18, 2016
Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) has extended the deadline to January 18 for its 2016 law program.
What: FASPE Law uses the conduct of lawyers and judges during the Holocaust and in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive course of study of contemporary ethical issues in the practice of law.
Where: FASPE is predicated upon the power of place. Fellows visit sites in Berlin, Germany, as well as Auschwitz and other sites in Poland, where they consider how to apply the lessons of history as they confront the ethical challenges of law today. All program costs are covered, including round-trip travel from New York to Europe, European travel, lodging, and food.
Who: FASPE Law is designed for students intending to become practicing attorneys, whether in the private sector, with public interest organizations, or the government. Ten to 15 Fellows will be chosen for the 2016 program. The law program is one of five programs offered by FASPE, all of which are designed to address contemporary ethical issues through this unique historical context. Law Fellows travel and share some seminars with Journalism and Business Fellows. The 2016 program will be led by Professor David Luban of Georgetown University.
When: FASPE Law will run from Friday, May 20 through Thursday, June 2, 2016.
