2019 International Fellows

The International Fellows Program provides an annual 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. 

The program provides the attorney general community the unique opportunity to: 

  • Engage with their counterparts throughout the globe. 
  • Establish international networks and contacts in an increasingly global world. 
  • Learn how to address common issues that government attorneys face in the U.S. and abroad. 


The International Fellows Program is a demanding 10-day collaborative program hosted in Washington, D.C., and New York City. The program requires engagement in challenging course materials and lectures, and full participation in a group research and writing project with an intense, busy schedule.   

During the International Fellows Program, selected attorneys can expect to: 

  • Collaborate with government attorneys from the U.S. and countries across the world, while developing a complex research project together. Explore the work of previous International Fellows.  
  • Meet with senior officials from the federal law enforcement, NGO, and judicial community in Washington, D.C., as well as state law enforcement officials from the area. 
  • Present their research findings before a prestigious panel in New York City.  
  • Participate in cultural activities in Washington, D.C., and New York, N.Y.
