2017 International Law Summer Fellowship Grants

The Law Schools International Programs Committee is pleased to announce that for the 17th year it will offer summer fellowship grants to J.D. students who work in non-paying or low-paying jobs related to international law.  Several stipends, in amounts of up to $3,000, will be available.

Students must find their own jobs.  Preference will be given to students who work abroad over those who work in the U.S.  There will also be a strong preference for those who find international jobs working for not-for-profit or government organizations, but other forms of employment providing international experience will also be considered.

 Awards will only be made to students who have confirmed job offers.

 Applicants should submit the following materials:

1) A current resume

2) Employer and job description, including salary, if any

3) Amount of stipend requested

4) A personal statement (no more than 3 pages, double-spaced) covering:

a. Your prior experience in international law and practice

b. Details of your current interests in that area

c. How this job relates to or advances those interests

5) A letter from the employer providing:

a. A description of the function and services of the organization

b. A description of the duties of the student

c. An explanation of how the student will be supervised

d. An explanation of what compensation, if any, will be provided to the student.

Please note: Students will be required to write a brief summary of their experience at the end of the summer.

Please forward these materials by e-mail to Professor Thomas Haney by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 10, 2017.  Please feel free to contact Professor Haney at thaney@luc.edu if you have any questions about this program.
