The Fall 2013 workshop of the National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism (NIFTEP) will take place Friday, November 15 – Sunday, November 17, 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia (USA).  The workshop theme is: “Are We Making a Difference?

Deadline:

We expect to begin reviewing applications on June 3 and plan to make selection decisions by June 28. Therefore, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications by June 3 for the limited number of fellowships (10 or less for this workshop).

Attendance & Costs:

Attendance at these highly participatory events is limited to invited speakers and to those selected to be NIFTEP Fellows. Fellowships are typically granted either to full-time law professors who incorporate issues of ethics and professionalism into their teaching or to legal practitioners actively involved in ethics CLE education and professionalism programs.  However, any person committed to promoting ethics and professionalism may apply.  There is no charge for workshop registration, lodging, or meals during the workshop.  A limited number of travel stipends for reimbursement of air fare may be available based on need; travel stipends will typically only reimburse a portion of air fare expenses.
