Summer Ethics Fellowships for Law Students
The Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) seeks applications for its 2014 law fellowships. FASPE Law, one component of a larger program that works with students in several fields, uses the conduct of lawyers and judges in Nazi Germany and the Holocaust as a launching point for an intensive course of study on legal ethics. FASPE is predicated upon the power of place, and in particular the first-hand experience of visiting Auschwitz and traveling through Germany and Poland where Fellows study the past and consider how to apply the lessons of history as they confront the ethical challenges of today.
In 2014 FASPE will take a group of 10-15 law students on an all-expenses-paid trip from New York to Berlin, Krakow, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz) where they will examine topics like: the challenge of ambition in professional development, ethics and government lawyering, dilemmas in day-to-day practice, and ethical approaches to truth and disclosure.
FASPE believes in the broad applicability of ethics training. We are looking for students with a wide range of legal interests including, among others: criminal law, constitutional law, corporate law, environmental law, human rights advocacy, international law, public interest law, real estate law, securities law, and tax law.
The 2014 program will run from Sunday, May 25 to Thursday, June 5. Fellowships cover all program costs, including international and European travel, lodging, and food.
To apply or to learn more about FASPE, visit: www.FASPE.info. Completed applications must be received by January 6, 2014. All students enrolled in graduate school at the time of their application are eligible. Award notifications will be emailed by March 1.
Students of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
