LLM graduate Marcos Kotlik will move to the Netherlands in September to begin a 10-month Judicial Fellowship at the International Court of Justice at The Hague Marcos Kotlik, a recent LLM graduate from the University of Michigan Law School, at the sixth annual Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program in Washington, D.C. earlier this year

A Salzburg Cutler Fellow has been selected to undertake a 10-month Judicial Fellowship at the International Court of Justice at The Hague. 

Marcos Kotlik, a recent LLM graduate from the University of Michigan Law School, attended the sixth annual Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program in Washington, D.C. earlier this year. 

He was one of five MLaw Cutler Fellows who explored the future of public and private international law. 

Speaking to LegalNews.com, Kotlik said, "Beyond the professional and academic aspects of the program, it was a really nice opportunity to meet wonderful people from around the world, learn about their countries and the universities they belonged to, and make new friends."

This year's Cutler Fellows Program saw participants engage with prominent legal professionals and public servants, including Seventh Circuit Chief Judge Diane Wood; Ivan Šimonović, United Nations Assistant Secretary-General and Special Adviser on the Responsibility to Protect; and William H. Webster, former CIA and FBI director.  

Kotlik and his peers also worked with faculty advisors from each of the participating law schools – University of Chicago, Columbia University, Duke University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, University of Michigan, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford University, University of Virginia, and Yale University – to sharpen their research papers tackling issues in international law ranging from trade and investment law to the law of war.

The Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program was established in memory of Lloyd N. Cutler, the Washington “superlawyer” who served as White House Counsel to Presidents Carter and Clinton. Cutler also served as Chair of Salzburg Global’s Board of Directors for a decade and advocated passionately for mentoring young leaders with a commitment to shaping a better world through law and rule of law. 

Since its founding in 2012, the Salzburg Cutler Fellows Program has carried forward Lloyd Cutler’s legacy and continues to empower rising legal professionals from around the world.
