As the result of funds raised by members of the Oxford Public International law subject group, the Oxford Law Faculty is able to offer funding to Ms Kamille Adair Morgan, who was selected by the International Court of Justice to undertake the Judicial Fellowship Programme.
Kamille is a qualified attorney-at-law in Jamaica and has, for the past 7 years, served as one of the coordinators of the Oxford Price Media Law Moot Court Competition. Her DPhil research examined the right of States to defend themselves against non-State actor attacks and threats.
The programme will run from 1 September 2021 to 30 June 2022. The Faculty and the PIL group congratulate Kamille on her selection by the Court.
The Oxford Law Faculty is one of a group of leading law faculties around the world invited by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to participate in the ICJ's Judicial Fellows Programme. The programme is similar to a judicial clerkship or judicial assistantship and provides an opportunity for one Oxford student or recent graduate to work for nearly a year at the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. The person selected works closely with the members of the Court by providing research assistance in support of their tasks, such as drafting opinions, orders and other court documents; preparing case files and researching a variety of legal issues.
