Where in the World are W&M Law Students This Summer?

by Elizabeth Cavallari and Rhianna Shabsin

Our students are working all over the country and the world – 21 states, DC, and 13 other countries!

The Law School has awarded public service fellowships totaling over $300,000 – the most ever awarded by the Law School – to 108 students for Summer 2013. These students are assisting 100 organizations nationally and internationally.

108 of our first- and second-year students will receive stipends from the school to work in public interest and government jobs over the summer. Of these, 18 will be working around the world on issues related to human rights and international law in connection with our Program in Comparative Legal Studies & Post-Conflict Peacebuilding in 13 countries (Argentina, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, China, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Poland, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Switzerland).
