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 one Huneke Fellowship, which includes a $1,000 stipend, is awarded 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 (remote access is available) and assist the organizers and presenters;
- 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.
