Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law

CERL’s Summer Internship Program

The Summer Internship Program prepares professional and graduate level students interested in the national security field by providing an ethics and rule of law foundation so that future perspectives, leadership, and decision-making are always rooted in the rule of law. Our interns help further CERL’s mission as well through research, writing, and conference planning, and gain valuable insights through conversations with national security experts on the critical and cutting-edge problems facing our nation today.

CERL’s Mission
CERL is a non-partisan institute that preserves and promotes ethics and the rule of law in national security, democratic governance, conflict, and war. The only center of its kind housed within a law school, CERL draws from the study of law, philosophy, and ethics, and unites scholars, policymakers, and practitioners, to probe critical issues through the lens of ethics and the rule of law. Using the tools of interdisciplinary engagement and open dialogue, CERL experts answer the hard questions that arise when the rule of law is threatened or violated, and provides guidance that helps safeguard U.S. democracy.
