IIEL Fellows Program:

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. Fellows attend an invitation-only speaker series, with thought leaders from government, academia, international organizations and the private bar. Recent speakers hailed from a wide variety of organizations, including the European Commission, Atlantic Council, Mexican Ministry of the Economy, ICAP, IMF, Mayer Brown LLP, Steptoe & Johnson LLP, USTR and universities in both the United States and Europe.

Fellows also have the opportunity to attend IIEL conferences and events throughout their time on campus, offering unparalleled opportunities for further learning and networking. Fellows are encouraged to enroll in the 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 and/or author pieces for IIEL’s Issue Brief Series.  Issue Briefs deliver clear and intelligible assessments of complex issues impacting the global economy—more analytically rigorous than most blog entries, but shorter than a law review article and of direct policy import. Topics covered in both IIEL publications include international trade, financial regulation and enforcement, monetary affairs and tax.

Internship Opportunities:

IIEL takes every opportunity to share relevant internship information with our Fellows.  As such, we will occasionally post student internship opportunities here.
