IPS Now Accepting Applications for the Huneke Fellowship – Opportunity for Current 1Ls and 2Ls

Categories: Uncategorized

The WSBA International Practice Section is now accepting applications for the Huneke Fellowship.

The Huneke Fellowship is an annual program administered by the Washington State Bar Association’s International Practice Section (IPS).  The Fellowship is designed to provide real-world experience, networking opportunities, and modest financial assistance for a law student interested in the international practice of law. Each year the IPS awards one Huneke Fellowship, which includes a $1,000 stipend, to a current 1L or 2L student.

Each Huneke Fellow agrees to serve as the official student liaison of the IPS for the subsequent school year and is expected to:

  • act as the chief point of contact between the IPS and the law schools.
  • assist with the planning and execution of IPS initiatives such as the Foreign Lawyer and Law Student Reception, the Mentor-Mentee Program, and the Annual General Meeting.
  • attend monthly mini-CLEs and, in conjunction with the presenters, write a 2-4 paragraph summary to be published on the IPS website.
  • publicize each IPS event at all three Washington state law schools.
  • recruit interested law students to become IPS members and apply for the following year’s Fellowship.

Any current 1L or 2L attending law school in the state of Washington (i.e., at the University of Washington, Seattle University, or Gonzaga University) is eligible for the Huneke Fellowship.

To apply for the Huneke Fellowship, please send (i) a brief statement of interest (300 word maximum), (ii) a resume, (iii) a transcript, and (iv) a short writing sample (3-5 pages) to Matthew Dresden (matthew.dresden@harrismoure.com) by May 1, 2015. After reviewing the applications, the IPS executive committee will interview the top two candidates.
