FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics), in collaboration with The Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, is now accepting applications for a fellowship that uses the conduct of lawyers and judges during the Holocaust and in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive two-week summer program on contemporary legal ethics. Fellowships include an all-expenses-paid trip from New York to Berlin, Krakow, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz) where students work with leading faculty to explore both legal history and the ethical issues facing practicing attorneys today. All program costs, including international and European travel, lodging, and food, are covered.
The 2015 FASPE Law program will run from May 24 to June 4.
The program is particularly targeted at students who intend to practice, whether in law firms, as prosecutors, as defense attorneys, or otherwise. All FASPE programs are non-denominational and candidates of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Completed applications must be received by January 6, 2015.
