ASIL Women in International Law Mentoring Program

Since 2013, hundreds of women in numerous countries and cities—from Tucson to Singapore—have enrolled in ASIL’s Mentoring Program as both mentors and mentees. The feedback has been extremely positive, and the current participants have built a strong, inter-connected, and global network. ASIL hopes to reach more women for the 2018-19 program!

The Women in International Law Mentoring Program is the first of its kind in international law and is designed to foster the next generation of female international lawyers. The program connects 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 locally, 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.

ASIL is currently accepting applications for mentees and mentors. In particular, ASIL strongly encourages potential mentees to join the Program. If you are considering participating, please sign up using the forms below.
