Miller-ASIL Student Fellowship

Miller Institute - American Society of International Law Student Fellowship 

co-sponsored by Berkeley Law's Advanced Degree Programs Office

The Miller Institute-American Society of International Law (ASIL) Student Fellow is awarded funding to attend the ASIL Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, the largest and most important gathering each year of international law practitioners, policymakers, and scholars. The ASIL Annual Meeting regularly features lectures and panels made up of the world’s most eminent international lawyers, including many Berkeley Law faculty and alumni/ae. Attending the meeting is an unparalleled opportunity to expand your knowledge and build your network.

This year with support from Berkeley Law's Advanced Degree Programs Office, we are able to fund one JD student, one LLM student, and one JSD student.

Richard Weir (’16)
JD student

Naomi Fenwick (’15) 
LLM student

Jerome Hsiang (’15) 
JSD student

Richard Weir is chapter director of Berkeley Law’s Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project, online editor of the Berkeley Journal of International Law, and a former member of the US military. He intends to use his trip to Washington DC as a way to develop his interest in international humanitarian law, refugee law, and national security law.

Naomi Fenwick, a human rights advocate and Cambridge University graduate, sees the meeting as “a unique opportunity to…explore the key question of how international law is changing in response to shifts in the global distribution of economic, political, and military power.”

Jerome Hsiang is finishing his dissertation on “The Frontiers of International and Transnational Law-Making.” He hopes to use his time at the meeting to complement his transition from being purely academically focused to becoming a practitioner of international law.
