CITBA/ASIL Summer Fellowship Program
CITBA/ASIL SUMMER FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The Customs and International Trade Bar Association (CITBA) and the American Society of International Law International Economic Law Interest Group (ASIL IEcLIG) are committed to diversity and inclusion in the international trade and economic law fields, to ending racism and its effects in our society, and to increasing opportunities for attorneys from underrepresented groups who have been adversely affected by racism. To further these goals and to assist promising students who otherwise might not be able to afford an international trade or economic law internship in the public or non-profit sector, CITBA and the ASIL IEcLIG offer every year a joint summer fellowship for first- or second-year law students who are members of groups that historically have been underrepresented in the customs and international trade law practice in the United States and that have been adversely affected by racism. Details of the summer 2024 program will be announced in the fall.
