Salzburg Cutler Law Fellows Program

Salzburg Global Seminar, in partnership with ten of the leading law schools in the USA, offers the "Salzburg Cutler Law Fellows Program," a one-of-a-kind program for students interested in international law and legal practice. Launched in the fall of 2012, the Salzburg Cutler Law Fellows Program was named in memory of Lloyd N. Cutler, former White House Counsel for two presidents and Chairman of the Board of Salzburg Global Seminar. Cutler strongly believed that one of the keys to progress was the early identifying and mentoring of young leaders with a yearning to make the world a better place through law and the rule of law.

The Salzburg Cutler Law Fellows Program convenes up to 50 students nominated by their law schools along with leading judges and practitioners for a highly interactive exploration of leading edge issues in international law, covering international human rights and humanitarian law; international courts; rule of law; and international finance, monetary, and trade law. Guided by lawyers from some of the top international law firms in the US, the Salzburg Cutler Law Fellows also received advice on how to determine career goals, manage career trajectories, identify the jobs beyond the first horizon of job seeking post-law school, and how to expand and utilize professional networks. In addition to these high-level workshops, students receive feedback on their own original research and writing on topics concerning the development of both public and private international law. Salzburg Cutler Fellows also automatically become members of the Salzburg Global Fellowship and its international network.

The Salzburg Cutler Law Fellows Program is currently open to students from the following ten US law schools: Chicago, Columbia, Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, New York University, Penn, Stanford, Virginia, and Yale.

Core Cluster- Imagination

Imagination lies at the heart of human development, opportunity and capacity for resilience – and will inspire the global transition to a knowledge economy.

Program 4

Core Cluster- Justice

As power is dispersed in a multi polar world, shifts in allegiance and identity are triggering radical shifts in relationships between individuals and institutions. We ask how societies can re-frame responsibilities, rights and cooperation between citizens, business, governments and regions to foster conditions for peace and prosperity.
