The 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Community Potluck Luncheon
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 12 p.m.- 2 p.m., Student Commons 
We had so much positive feedback from the last two years that we are planning another, even more exciting community luncheon! The luncheon includes staff, faculty and students. This year, we are inviting the students to attend without bringing food. We will provide turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, rolls and beverages and faculty and staff will bring desserts. We hope to see many students there! No RSVP is required.
The Leader Within: Women in the Legal Profession
Join us to talk about women in the workplace. You cannot change what you cannot see. At the Leader Within - Women in the Legal Profession on December 3, 2018, at the State Bar of Georgia, smart, compelling, and engaged lawyers will get together to talk about what we can do to improve the workplace for women.

At our inaugural event earlier this year in February, we talked about workplace differences for women across race and class, how to enlist allies across gender, race, and class, and what we, as individuals can do to shift workplace culture in a more inclusive direction.

As you might imagine, these topics sparked a lively and candid conversation between the panel and the audience. We were delighted to learn that after the program, many people took the conversation back to their workplaces and hosted a similar dialogue amongst their colleagues.

We are looking forward to an equally inspiring morning as we prepare to usher in 2019.

10 tickets have been set aside for Emory Law students. Please email Erin Gerstenzang to claim your ticket.

Bederman Fellowships at The Hague Academy - Summer 2019

Each summer Emory Law School, through its David J. Bederman Fellowship, provides funding for up to two students to attend the Hague Academy of International Law’s summer program. This is a wonderful opportunity for those of you interested in international law to attend summer courses in public international law, private international law, or both. Each session is three weeks long; Bederman Fellows receive a stipend of $5,000 for one session, or $7,000 for both sessions. These competitive grants cover travel and living expenses, as well as tuition and fees for the program.  

More information about the Bederman Fellowship can be found hereThe deadline for applications this year is December 3rd. If you are selected as a Bederman Fellow, you would then have to separately apply to the Hague Academy according to the timetable provided on the Academy website (note that their deadline is January 31, 2019); you can pretty safely assume that if you are selected by the law school as a Bederman Fellow, you will be admitted to the program.
