|FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) is now accepting applications for its 2018 Law program.
FASPE 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 of 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 2018, the program will take place from Monday, May 21 to Friday, June 1. (Fellows are expected to arrive in Europe by Sunday, May 20.)
All program costs are covered, including the equivalent of round-trip travel from New York to Europe, as well as all 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 2018. It is designed to address ethical challenges in all fields of law, including the private sector, public interest organizations, and the government.
