International Organizations, Law and Diplomacy
Summer Program in Washington and Geneva
Washington, DC: May 26 - June 19, 2015
Geneva, Switzerland: June 29 - July 17, 2015
Welcome and Introduction:
The Program on International Organizations, Law and Diplomacy (PIOLD) is designed to foreground the challenges that lawyers face in working for public, private, and nongovernmental clients in international organizations including the World Bank Group (WB), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the European Union Delegation (EU) and the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington, DC. PIOLD offers the same cutting edge training for lawyers interested in practicing in the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Word Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the UN Human Rights Treaty Bodies in Geneva, Switzerland. These new challenges beg for creative lawyering that can address new institutional solutions through heterodox strategies. PIOLD provides legal and soft skills for lawyers who need to navigate the changing architecture of global governance in a multicultural environment.
