FASPE (Fellowship at Auschwitz for Study of Professional Ethics) 2018

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.

FASPE Law is not a Holocaust studies program, nor is it a genocide prevention program. FASPE Law focuses on the ethical problems faced by individual lawyers in the contemporary settings in which they practice.

Eligibility: FASPE Law applicants must either be enrolled in a J.D. or LL.M. program at the time of their application or have received a J.D. or LL.M. between May 2017 and January 2018. FASPE seeks students who are interested in working as practicing attorneys, although applicants who have a JD or LLM degree and are planning an academic career are also eligible. FASPE is interested in applications from students with a wide range of legal interests including, among others, corporate law, constitutional law, criminal law, environmental law, international law, public interest law, real estate law, securities law and tax law. FASPE has a particular interest in working with students who expect to work as litigators.

Fellowships are not limited by citizenship, nationality, age or religion.
