Last chance! REGISTER BY 9/25 for IRLS Foreign Policy Simulation, Oct. 4 & 5 (credit optional!)

This is your last chance to register for the IRLS program’s exciting two-day international crisis response simulation! Read more below and register by September 25!

Are you interested in foreign policy, international security, and conflict prevention? Do you want to learn how the US government, NGOs, and others respond to a complex international crisis that is unfolding in real-time? You can practice your leadership skills and making the tough decisions yourself! The International Rule of Law and Security Program is hosting a two-day mass atrocity response simulation at BCLS on October 4 and 5, 2019.

Students from any class and degree program are encouraged to participate (including 1Ls and MLS/LLM students).


Participants will be divided into six teams, each representing a major international player. Each team will be led by an experienced team leader with US government and international experience. The simulation will give those interested in international law, foreign policy, economic development, and other disciplines a hands-on opportunity to test their decision-making and teamwork skills in a realistic setting.



2L & 3L JD students may elect to pursue a 1-credit independent study with Professor Fromholz by participating in the simulation and writing a paper on a topic related to the exercise. Papers will be ~3,000 words and together, the paper and simulation participation will be graded on a Pass/Fail basis. To sign up for the independent study option or for more information, e-mail Space is limited.
