The Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE), is inviting applications for its Law program, one component of a larger program designed to address contemporary ethical issues facing professionals in various fields.  FASPE Law uses the conduct of lawyers and judges in Nazi Germany and the Holocaust as a launching point for an intensive course of study on legal ethics. FASPE is predicated upon the power of place, and in particular the first-hand experience of visiting Auschwitz and traveling through Germany and Poland where Fellows study the past and consider how to apply the lessons of history as they confront the ethical challenges of today.
 
Last year the program was co-directed by Professor Brett Dignam and included Morenike Fajana (class of 2014) as a Fellow.
 
In 2013 FASPE will take a group of 10-15 law students on an all expenses-paid program to Berlin, Oświęcim (Auschwitz), and Nuremberg where they will examine such topics as: the challenge of ambition in professional development, ethics and government lawyering, dilemmas in day-to-day practice, and ethical approaches to truth and disclosure.
 
FASPE believes in the broad applicability of ethics training and is looking for students with a wide range of legal interests, ranging from real estate and corporate law to human rights advocacy and public interest law.
 
The program dates in 2013 will run from May 26 to June 6. The fellowships will cover all program costs, including international and European travel, lodging, and food.
