ASIL and its Women in International Law Interest Group are continuing their support for the Women in International Law Mentoring Program. Since 2013, hundreds of women have enrolled in ASIL’s mentoring program as both mentors and mentees in 20 cities from Tucson to Singapore.
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 field of international law. Upon finishing the requirements of the one-year program, all participants receive a certificate of completion.
The introductory video used for all mentees is included below.
Applications for Mentors & Mentees are now open. The mentoring program will take place during the 2017-18 academic year. The deadline for mentee and mentor applications is July 14, 2017.
