Newton, MA--BC Law second-year student Andrew Haile has been awarded one of "The Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics." FASPE is a competitive fellowship for an intensive summer study of professional ethics in Germany and Poland.

During the fellowship, 48 graduate medical, law, journalism, and seminary students participate in a two-week summer program in New York City, Germany, and Poland that uses the history of the Holocaust as a lens through which Fellows explore contemporary ethical issues they may face as professionals. Fellows visit Auschwitz and travel through Germany and Poland where they examine how the ethical codes governing their profession can be broken down or distorted along with the dire consequences that could follow.

Haile is the second Boston College Law School student to be selected for the Fellowship, which receives hundreds of applications each year. Previous FASPE Fellowship winners include current Boston College Law School third-year student Jessica Frattaroli and Boston College School of Theology and Ministry students Michael Rozier, S.J., Nicholas Collura and Amy Chapman.
