  • This event is archived.

Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) is now accepting applications for its 2020 program. SLS students are invited to join an information session to learn about FASPE and meet with FASPE Executive Director Thorsten Wagner.

Please RSVP.

FASPE Law is a fully-funded, two-week fellowship program in professional ethics and ethical leadership that begins by examining the actions and choices of German lawyers in enabling Nazi policies. It then draws on this historical example to help Law Fellows both grasp their role as influencers in their field and in their communities as well as identify and confront the ethical issues currently facing legal professionals. The program takes place in Germany and Poland at the sites of Nazi actions, allowing Fellows to benefit from the power of the place and immersive, contextual learning.


  • Program Dates: Friday, May 22 – Friday, June 5, 2020.
  • Fully-funded: All program costs are covered, including travel, lodging, and food.
  • Interdisciplinary: FASPE Law Fellows travel with Fellows in the FASPE Journalism and Business programs.
  • Itinerary: Fellows will travel to Berlin, Krakow, and Oswiecim (the location of the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz).
