The Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law is conducting a search for an Executive Director.
The Center for Ethics and Rule of Law is a non-partisan interdisciplinary institute dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the rule of law in twenty-first century warfare and national security. The only Center of its kind housed within a law school, CERL draws from the study of law, philosophy, and ethics to answer the difficult questions that arise in times of war and contemporary transnational conflicts. The Center unites scholars and policymakers from various fields in a multi-disciplinary conversation on some of the most challenging issues of our time.
CERL seeks to recruit an experienced Executive Director for the Center with a background that is both academic and practice-oriented. The Executive Director will oversee and direct all of CERL’s operations while collaborating with CERL’s Faculty Director to design and implement a long-term growth strategy to advance CERL’s mission. Reporting to CERL’s Faculty Director, the Executive Director of CERL will be responsible for CERL’s two annual roundtable conferences and additional one-day public events, as well as for engaging in communications, marketing, and fundraising for CERL’s activities and programs. The Executive Director will direct CERL’s Summer Internship Program, as well as co-ordinate with other students and staff who work with CERL throughout the calendar year.

Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics in Law
FASPE Law (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics in Law) is a fully-funded two-week summer program that uses the conduct of lawyers and judges in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive study in contemporary legal ethics. FASPE Law is predicated upon the power of place. Fellows visit Auschwitz and other sites in Germany and Poland where they consider how to apply the lessons of history to the ethical challenges they will face in their careers.
In 2018, the program will take place from Monday, May 21 to Friday, June 1. (Fellows are expected to arrive in Europe by Sunday, May 20.) All program costs are covered, including the equivalent of round-trip travel from New York to Europe, as well as all European travel, lodging and food. FASPE Law Fellows travel and share some seminars with Fellows in the FASPE Business and Journalism programs.
FASPE Law is open to current JD and LLM students and those who received a JD or LLM between May 2016 and January 2018. It is designed to address ethical challenges in all fields of law, including the private sector, public interest organizations, and the government.
