Associate Dean Bravo Re-appointed to Helton Selection Committee of American Society of International Law
Associate Dean Karen Bravo was re-appointed to the Arthur C. Helton Fellowship Program Committee. The Helton Program, established in 2004 on the recommendation of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) Honors Committee, recognizes the legacy of Arthur C. Helton. Helton was a ASIL member who died in the August 19, 2003, bombing of the United Nations mission in Baghdad along with UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Sergio Vieira de Mello and 20 others.
"I continue to be both honored and awed to participate on this committee,” Associate Dean Bravo said. “Honored to play a small role in carrying on the legacy of Andrew Helton, and awed by the commitment and creativity demonstrated by the young lawyers and law students who have applied for the fellowship.”
Funded in part by contributions from ASIL members, the fellowship provides financial assistance in the form of micro-grants to ensure that these individuals have access to modest amounts of funding that can often stand between them and their first professional opportunities to become effective practitioners, experts, and scholars of international law. Fellows will undertake their project in association with an established educational institution, international organization, or non-governmental organization working in areas related to international law, human rights, and humanitarian affairs. Associate Dean Bravo will serve on the 2013 selection committee, which reviews applications for the fellowship.
Professor Bravo is a John S. Grimes Fellow, a Dean’s Fellow, and Associate Dean for International Affairs.
