The American Society of International Law’s (ASIL) Women in International Law Interest Group is launching a mentoring program that will match female law students or new professionals with experienced female international lawyers.  This mentoring program is the first of its kind in the international law arena and is designed to foster a new generation of female international lawyers. The first iteration of the mentoring program will run from fall 2013 through spring 2014 in the U.S., Canada, London, Geneva, and The Hague, and participants – both mentors and mentees – are being sought at this time.

Mentoring takes place locally, in a group setting, with a maximum of four mentees for every mentor. Mentors and mentees meet in person several times during the course of an academic year to discuss topics and engage in activities designed to help junior women enter and be successful in international law. Mentors will be provided with pre-planned meeting topics to structure meetings for their groups. Upon finishing the requirements of the one-year program, all participants will receive a certificate of completion. Please contact ilfellow1@asil.org for more information or to sign up.
