The IIEL Fellowship Program
Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) invites applications for its 2017-2018 IIEL Fellows program. Students with a background and interest in international economic law are encouraged to apply.
The IIEL Fellows Program brings together JD, LL.M. and doctoral students, visiting scholars and practitioners to discuss new policy developments in all areas of international economic law. The selection of Fellows is based on demonstrated interest in the field of international economic law. Fellows attend an invitation-only speaker series, with thought leaders from government, academia, international organizations and the private bar. Recent speakers have hailed from a wide variety of organizations, including the European Commission, multiple embassies, U.S. regulatory agencies, the Atlantic Council, ICAP, IMF, global law firms, USTR, corporate entities and universities in both the United States and Europe. More information about the IIEL is in IIEL’s 2017 Annual Report and One-Pager.
Fellows have the opportunity to attend and be involved in IIEL conferences and events throughout their time on campus, offering unparalleled opportunities for further learning and networking. Fellows are encouraged to enroll in the spring 2018 International Law & Policy Colloquium for an even deeper academic experience. Along with Colloquium students, Fellows are invited to submit pieces for inclusion in “IIEL In the Know,” the Institute’s occasional newsletter for lawyers, regulators and financial authorities. Topics covered include international trade, financial regulation and enforcement, monetary affairs and tax. The Fellowship offers unrivaled networking and learning opportunities, if no funding.
