There will be an orientation and information session on Friday, October 19, from 2:00 to 3:45, in Furman Hall, Room 212, regarding dedicated summer internships through the International Law and Human Rights Fellowship Program, the International Finance and Development Fellowship Program for LLMs and The Hague Conference on Private International Law. Current full-time 1L, 2L, LLM and JSD students at NYU School of Law in New York and Singapore are eligible to apply for ILHR Fellowship; LLMs are eligible to apply for the IFD Fellowship; and 1Ls and 2Ls with PILC summer funding are eligible to apply for The Hague Conference internship.

The International Law and Human Rights Fellowship Program is coordinated by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) in cooperation with the Institute for International Law and Justice (IILJ) with the support of the Public Interest Law Center (PILC). Individuals who are current full-time 1L, 2L, LLM and JSD students at NYU in New York and Singapore are eligible to apply. For more information, see https://chrgj.org/opportunities/fellowships.html. The Fellowship has two major components: a 10-12 week internship in summer 2013 at one of many international organizations and a post-internship academic research paper. The list of ILHR program internship organizations is not yet final but is expected to include international tribunals (e.g. ICTY); UN organizations (e.g., ILC, UNHCR); international and national NGOs (e.g., groups in locations as diverse as Beijing, Bogotá, Cairo, Dhaka, Jerusalem, Johannesburg, London, Nairobi and New Delhi).

The International Finance and Development Fellowship Program for LLMs is coordinated by the Office of Graduate Affairs. The Fellowship has two major components: an internship at a prominent international organization: EBRD, IDLO, IISD, IMF, WIPO, UNIDROIT and World Bank, and a research paper. Students who are current full-time LLM students in New York and Singapore are eligible to apply. For more information, see http://www.law.nyu.edu/graduateaffairs/fellowshipsinternships/index.htm.

Selection of ILHR and IFD Fellows: Selection of ILHR and IFD Fellows is competitive, through an application and interview process, expected to conclude in early December for ILHR and in January for IFD Fellows. The ILHR Fellowship application will be available on October 19 on the CHRGJ and IILJ websites (www.chrgj.org and www.iilj.org) and at the meeting that day. The IFD Fellowship application will be available at the meeting and on the OGA website (www.law.nyu.edu/graduateaffairs/fellowshipsinternships/fellowshipdetails/index.htm).
