The Institute of International Economic Law’s (IIEL) Fellows may attend an invitation-only speaker series with thought leaders from government, academia, international organizations, and the private bar. Recent speakers have hailed from a wide variety of organizations, including the European Commission, Atlantic Council, Mexican Ministry of the Economy, ICAP, IMF, USTR, multinational law firms, and universities in both the United States and Europe.

Fellows also have the opportunity to attend IIEL conferences and events throughout their time on campus, offering unparalleled opportunities for further learning and networking. Fellows are encouraged to enroll in the International Law & Policy Colloquium for an even deeper academic experience. Each year, one Fellow is named a John H. Jackson Memorial Scholar.
