Miller-ASIL Student Award
Miller Institute-American Society of International Law Annual Meeting Award 2013-2014
In order to promote student engagement with international law, the Miller Institute sponsors an contest in the fall to cover the registration and travel expenses for a Berkeley Law student to attend the Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law. This year’s meeting will be held in Washington DC in April 2014.
We are pleased to announce that the trip has been awarded to Mariel Bird ('15). Mariel worked as a Judicial Intern at United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and is currently a participant in ASIL’s Women in International Law Mentoring Program. She plans to use the trip to Washington as an opportunity “to engage with members of the international law community” and “to connect with individuals from a diverse set of international law backgrounds.”
Berkeley Law is an Academic Partner of the American Society of International Law (ASIL). As such, all Berkeley Law students are eligible for half-price membership in ASIL.
For information on the 2014-2015 award, please check back in Fall 2014.
