International Law and Human Rights Fellowship Program

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, in cooperation with the Institute for International Law and Justice, administers a fellowship program for selected NYU School of Law students that combines academic and practical experience in international law and human rights. The International Law and Human Rights (ILHR) Fellowship Program offers the opportunity to complete a specialized training program in international law, undertake a summer internship at a leading institution or organization, and complete a substantial research paper growing out of that work experience. Established in 2002, the fellowship program is undertaken with support from the Public Interest Law Center. A modest stipend is available for students selected for the fellowship.
