International Fellows Program
The purpose of the NAGTRI International Fellows Program is to provide a forum for elite government attorneys from around the world to learn from each other, explore common issues together, and establish an international network to the mutual benefit of their respective offices. Approximately twenty participants will be selected to take part in this year’s program. Please understand that this is a challenging and demanding program, requiring full engagement in the materials, research and discussion with a class project as the ultimate goal. This year, the focus of the program will be the Prosecutor as Problem Solver: Innovative Prosecutorial and Crime Fighting Strategies.
Fellows are not expected to be experts in this area or even have dealt with the issue in the course of their duties. Rather, the topic serves as a vehicle for the class to jointly analyze an issue with fresh and unique perspectives. The Fellows will work to produce articles on this theme, which will be published in the NAAG newsletter.
Please understand this is a challenging and demanding program. Fellows will be expected to review materials that will be distributed beforehand and conduct research into the extent of the problem in their jurisdiction. Fellows are expected to attend the entire program and participate in all of the activities. During the program, participants will collaborate on the completion of a class project. Fellows will also have the opportunity to discuss findings and conclusions at a panel discussion to be held at a prominent law school.
The nomination period will open in mid December 2014 for international applicants and in March 2015 for US applicants.
Due to the very interactive nature of the program, attendance is limited. We anticipate a large number of nominations.
