FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics)

Date: 05/21/2017 - 06/02/2017       Location: Germany and Poland
Description:

FASPE Law (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics in Law) is a fully-funded two-week summer program that uses the conduct of lawyers and judges in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive study in contemporary legal ethics.

FASPE Law is predicated upon the power of place. Fellows visit Auschwitz and other sites in Germany and Poland where they consider how to apply the lessons of history to the ethical challenges they will face in their careers.

In 2017, the program will take place from Sunday, May 21 to Friday, June 2. (Fellows are expected to arrive in Europe by Saturday, May 20.) All program costs are covered, including round-trip travel from New York to Europe, European travel, lodging, and food. FASPE Law Fellows travel and share some seminars with Fellows in the FASPE Business and Journalism programs.

FASPE Law is open to current JD and LLM students and those who received a JD or LLM between May 2016 and January 2017. It is designed to address ethical challenges in all fields of law, including the private sector, public interest organizations, and the government.
