The Salzburg Global Seminar forms partnerships with leading institutions around the world with a mission to challenge present and future leaders to solve issues of global concern.This independent, non-governmental organization convenes imaginative thinkers from different cultures, organizes problem-focused initiatives, supports leadership development, and engages opinion-makers through active communication networks.

Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program (Washington, DC)

The Cutler Fellows Program in November 2012, brought together law students with top academics and practitioners in the fields of private and public international law for an intensive one-day discussion of the most critical issues shaping today’s international law agenda. 

Students who participated in the program prepared a 5-7 page paper outlining particular issues or questions in international law. During the Seminar, fellows were divided into breakout groups based on their research paper.  At these sessions, students presented their research proposal and received feedback from fellow participants and from faculty and practitioners in the field. Several participants plan to develop their work into a research paper, journal note, or other publication. 

A maximum of five Penn Law students are admitted into this program, and admission is competitive.
