Work On! Law student fellowship

Law students are invited to apply for Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics, designed, in the words of the program's managing director, Dr. Thorin Tritter, "to challenge law students to consider contemporary ethical issues using the conduct of their historical peers in Nazi Germany as a framework."
The program, to take place from May 20 to 31, 2012, operates in collaboration with New York's Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. Fellowships include an all-expense-paid trip from New York to Berlin, Krakow, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz). Faculty in Europe will help students explore not only history, but also contemporary ethical issues.
Law students of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Deadline for applications is January 6, 2012. Details here.
