Publish Date/Time: 
December 19, 2013

Professor Ronald A. Brand, the Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg University Professor, has agreed to use part of the Professorship funds available to him to support up to three fellowships per year for law students with summer internships.  A Nordenberg Fellow will be funded in the amount of $6,000 to cover travel and expenses.  An initial payment of $5,800 will be provided at the beginning of the summer in which the internship occurs, with an additional $200 paid upon submission of a final report after completion of the internship.

A legal internship at any location in the world may serve as the basis for an application for the Nordenberg Fellowship.  In most instances, it is best to have the internship already lined up prior to applying for the Fellowship.  Those seeking information on possible internships should contact CILE Assistant Director, Brian Fraile (  In prior years, we have arranged for placement of Nordenberg Fellows at two of the most prestigious institutions focused on European law (Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg, Germany and Institute for European Studies, Brussels, Belgium), and an application may simply indicate an interest in one of those placements.

The Deadline for submissions is Friday, February 14, 2014.
