UW Welcomes Muskie Fellow to Law School
The UW School of Law welcomes Maryna Dymovich, a student from Belarus taking part in the U.S. Department of State's Edmund S. Muskie Graduate Fellowship Program.
Dymovich is pursuing a graduate degree in Asian and Comparitive Law.
Established by the U.S. Congress in 1992 to encourage economic and democratic growth in Eurasia,
the Edmund S. Muskie Graduate Fellowship Program is a program of the Bureau of Educational and
Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State (ECA), and administered by IREX. The Edmund S.
Muskie Graduate Fellowship Program aims to promote mutual understanding, build democracy and
foster the transition to market economies in Eurasia through intensive academic study and professional
training for fellows from 12 countries of the former Soviet Union. In addition to their academic
coursework, all Muskie fellows perform community service and complete a summer internship in their
field of study.
The Asian and Comparative Law LL.M. program provides advanced, specialist courses for lawyers and policy makers who are pursuing careers in Asian, Islamic, international commercial or development law.
The program focuses on global and cross-jurisdictional issues in international governance, institution-building, regulation, commercial transactions and sustainability.
