ABA-ICC Project Legal and Advocacy Fellows

The ABA Center for Human Rights is looking for two fellows from AU-WCL for the ABA-International Criminal Court Project, which is a program that aims to support ICC core operations as well as strengthen the US-ICC relationship. Fellows will help develop and implement various activities that the Project undertakes, such as best practice engagements on international criminal law, training modules that will take place in The Hague and elsewhere, and ICC advocacy and education initiatives. Additionally, fellows will assist on organizational needs, such as correspondence with the ICC, new website development and database maintenance.

Applicants should be able to demonstrate a passion for international criminal law. Further, applicants should have a firm grasp of the Project’s philosophy, the ability to think creatively on developing initiatives that serve the Project’s goals and a willingness and ability to take on several kinds of work assignments at once. An academic background in international criminal law and relevant practical experience are strongly preferred. Fellows will primarily work remotely with meetings and work done at the ABA as necessary. Accordingly, the ability to deliver satisfactory work on time while working in and out of the office is necessary.

Fellows will be required to work 20 hours a week. For those interested, please send a cover letter, CV (with  GPA and references), and 500 word essay that demonstrates your specific interests in international criminal law as well as an thoughtful proposal of an discrete initiative for the Project to consider implementing, to humlaw@wcl.american.edu, with “ABA-ICC Project Fellowship Application” as the subject line.
