January 25, 2012 at 9:13 pm Leave a comment

PILnet: The Global Network for Public Interest Law is pleased to invite applications for the PILnet International Fellowship for 2012. PILnet will select lawyers from China, the MENA region (specifically Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia), and Southeast Asia (especially Indonesia, Cambodia, and Vietnam) for ten months of study and practical experience in New York and Budapest, Hungary. The program, now in its fifteenth year, targets future leaders in various fields of public interest advocacy.

PILnet International Fellows will reside a total of eight months in the U.S. and two months in Europe, during which time they will develop a project designed to further the rule of law in their home countries. The Fellowship begins with a semester of study at Columbia University School of Law and a series of professional development trainings. In the spring, the International Fellows will participate in three-month internships at New York-based public interest law organizations and a study visit based out of PILnet’s Budapest office. Fellows return to their home countries after the Fellowship with the aim of implementing the project they developed during the Fellowship.
