Each year, Harvard Law nominates four students to become Salzburg Cutler Fellows. The Lloyd Cutler Fellows Program brings together more than fifty of the nation’s top law students with leading academics and practitioners in the fields of private and public international law. It is run by the Salzburg Global Seminar, an independent non-profit designed to create future leaders. The aim is two-fold: (1) to create a network of women and men interested in careers in international legal practice and public service, and (2) to provide an opportunity for promising future leaders to gain academic feedback and career advice from established international law scholars and practitioners.

Fellows will participate in a series of academic and career-related networking events to held virtually (on weekday evenings and weekends) in late February and early March. Fellows will receive individualized feedback from peers and faculty on their current projects from other T14 law schools. In addition, there will be a series of talks (either virtual or in-person) featuring eminent practitioners. Fellows are also invited to participate in a series of career-related discussions with practitioners from different fields of international law. Cutler Fellows will have a chance to become acquainted with one another through networking activities. They will also be invited to future alumni gatherings.

Should pandemic circumstances allow, there may be an in-person gathering of Salzburg Cutler Fellows on March 11-12 in Washington, DC. If this occurs, Harvard Law will cover reasonable expenses for HLS Fellows.
