Jeremie Bracka (LL.M. '09) wins Helton Fellowship

The American Society of International Law (ASIL) has awarded a 2009 Helton Fellowship to Jeremie Bracka (LL.M. '09). Each of the 11 Helton Fellows will receive a $1,500 microgrant to pursue projects in the realm of international law, human rights, and humanitarian affairs. Bracka will focus on transitional justice education between Israel and Palestine and in Morocco during his full-time internship with the International Center for Transitional Justice's Middle East and North Africa Unit. In that role, he will disseminate curricula in Hebrew, Arabic, and French to relevant institutions and organizations. The Helton Fellowship was established in honor of Arthur C. Helton, a lawyer and advocate for the rights of refugees and internally displaced persons who died in the 2003 bombing of the United Nations mission in Baghdad. Previous Helton Fellows from NYU Law include Reena Arora '08 and Anna Gay (LL.M. '08).
