Last year’s launch was extremely successful with over 47 groups across the United States and 5 countries worldwide. We look forward to expanding the program even further this year.

The Women in International Law Mentoring Program (WMP) links experienced female international law professionals with female law students and new attorneys interested in professional development in the field of international law. Mentoring takes place in a group setting, with a maximum of four mentees for every mentor. Mentors and mentees meet in person every other month during the course of an academic year to discuss topics and engage in activities designed to help junior women enter and be successful in the beginning years of practicing international law. Upon finishing the requirements of the one-year program, all participants receive a certificate of completion.

We are currently accepting applications for mentees and mentors. We particularly encourage potential mentors to join the Program. If you are considering it, please do sign up. It is the mentors who make this program possible, and we do all that we can to make it fulfilling and hassle-free.

To sign up, please fill out the attached mentor or mentee application form and send to ilfellow1@asil.org.

The deadline for mentee applications is June 15, 2014  and for mentor applications is July 1, 2014.
