Catholic University’s Comparative and International Law Institute (CILI) conducted its annual collaboration with the Polish Embassy to present “An International Career Panel and Networking Reception,” held on March 26, 2015 at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington, D.C.
 
Each spring, the evening gathering permits CUA Law students who are interested in developing careers in international law to meet with practicing CILI graduates to learn more about the skills and preparation that are necessary to succeed in the field.
 
Fifty attendees heard welcome remarks from Minister Maciej Pisarski, Deputy Chief of Mission, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland; and Dr. Rett R. Ludwikowski, Director of the Comparative and International Law Institute, and Director of the International Business and Trade Summer Law Program, Columbus School of Law.
 
Speakers for the international career panel included:
 
Moderator, the Hon. Patrick A. Mulloy, former Assistant Secretary of Commerce and former commissioner, U.S.-China Economic & Security Review Commission; Tomasz Chmal, Partner, White & Case; Dr. Izabela Krasnicka, Associate Professor, Department of Public International Law of the Faculty of Law, University in Bialystok, Poland; Mark R. Ludwikowski, Member, Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A.; and Daniel F. Attridge, Dean and Knights of Columbus Professor of Law, offered closing remarks.
 
Now celebrating its 30th year, the Comparative and International Law Institute was founded to respond to the growing need to expose students to the public and private fields of international law, international trade and business, and private foreign investment. Since 1985, the Institute has graduated more than 500 students with extensive experience in the international arena.
 
The Institute supports two main academic options for overseas study:
 
The International Business and Trade Summer Law Program, referred to as the Cracow Program, was established in 1992 to expose students to the wide range of skills required for success in the rapidly changing international arena. This summer, the Cracow Program will celebrate its 24th collaboration between The Catholic University of America and the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland.
 
The International Human Rights Summer Law Program (“Rome Program”) was offered for the first time in 2011. Students explore essential questions of human rights law in a beautiful city that has played a central role in religion, history, art and culture. The Rome Program is on hiatus in summer 2015, but will be offered again for summer 2016.
