Work On! Law student fellowship

Law students are invited to apply for Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics, that, in the words of the program's managing director, Dr. Thorin Tritter, "uses the conduct of lawyers and judges in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive two-week early summer program about contemporary legal ethics."
The program, tentatively set for May 26 to June 6, 2013, 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 11, 2013. Details here.
