Daniel Rangel Jurado received a General Fellowship Award to complete an internship with Public Citizen. Daniel graduated with an LL.M. in International Legal Studies and a certificate in WTO and International Trade Studies.
“My fellowship at Public Citizen´s Global Trade Watch was the perfect bridge to the next stage of my career. It allowed me to get involved in the policy world and to do the kind of work that I was expecting to do when I decided to pursue an LL.M.
This opportunity allowed me to show the quality of my work and it was essential for me to get a permanent position at the organization that opened up while I was a fellow.

Isabelle received a General Fellowship award to support her internship with the World Bank, Legal Vice Presidency Team in Washington, D.C. where she worked as a legal intern with the Environmental and International Law Practice Group. Isabelle graduated with an LL.M in Environmental and Energy Law.
“The internship experience allowed me to gain full-time professional experience at the World Bank which was valuable to the work I now do. I was offered the opportunity to extend my internship into a formal role with the LEGVPU team, however, I was unable to accept this as by the time I began the internship I had already accepted a job offer back home in New Zealand.
I would not have been able to take part in this internship experience without the generous assistance provided by the LL.M Post Graduate Fellowship. Because my internship was unpaid,
I would not have been able to financially support myself throughout the summer, particularly given the high living costs in D.C. I am incredibly grateful that the LL.M Post Graduate Fellowship allowed me to accept this opportunity at the World Bank.”
