UChicago Law Students Forge Online Connections at the Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program

Leading Law Students Forge Online Connections

WASHINGTON DC – Students from the University of Chicago Law School joined their peers from 13 other leading law schools online this March to explore the future of public and private international law at the ninth annual Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program

Convening online rather than in-person in Washington, DC due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic meant that the program this year lasted from March 11 to 27, rather than a single weekend as in previous years. The six-session program saw law students from schools across the US engage with prominent legal professionals, public servants, and leaders in the fields of international law and public service, and build connections across their school networks that will serve them in years to come, as well as connecting them to the wider international Salzburg Cutler Fellows network.

While all studying in the US, the 53 students of the ninth cohort of Cutler Fellows represented many countries, including Canada, China, Ghana, Mexico, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United States, among others, maintaining the international nature of the program. Students selected from UChicago Law were Amber Stewart, Caitlan Sussman, Neema Hakim and Christy Crouse. They were accompanied by Tom Ginsburg, Leo Spitz Professor of International Law, Ludwig and Hilde Wolf Research Scholar, Professor of Political Science.

The 14 law schools taking part in the 2021 program included Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, Michigan, New York University, Northwestern, Penn, Stanford, UC Berkeley, the University of Virginia, and Yale.
