Law Fellowships & Working At CIEL

Niranjali Amerasinghe, Former Louis B. Sohn Fellow “At CIEL, caring for people and the environment is not just a job; it's a way of life. From my fellowship to my position as a Staff Attorney, I have been and continue to be amazed by the impact that a small but dedicated group of people can have on the world. If you want to learn how international law can be used to protect the environment and the people affected by environmental issues, there is nowhere better than here.

My experience here has broadened my horizons, exposed me to issues and forums that I never imagined I would come across till later in my career, and brought me great joy. In CIEL, I have found not only a great place to work, but also lifelong friends and a sense that CIEL will always be home.”
