Institute for Transnational Law Welcomes Fulbright Scholar as New Research Fellow

The Institute for Transnational Law serves as a focal point for excellence in the fields of international and comparative law at The University of Texas at Austin. The Institute oversees and organizes various programs designed around the belief that students and faculty at Texas Law benefit greatly from exchanges of people and ideas. Therefore, the Institute seeks to build bridges between Texas Law and people and institutions around the world, help students build international networks, promote joint research projects on topics of international and comparative law, support emerging scholars’ research, and bring together J.D. and LL.M. students interested in learning about transnational law with visiting students and scholars.

In support of its mission and vision, the Institute has awarded Andreas Hallbeck, a Fulbright Scholar from Sweden pursuing an LL.M. degree at the University of Texas School of Law, a research fellowship for the 2017-2018 academic year. Hallbeck’s LL.M. degree concentration is in Global Energy, International Arbitration, and Environmental Law, with special emphasis on International Arbitration. As part of his fellowship, he is researching topics relevant to the intersection of international law and politics. Prior to starting his LL.M., he was an associate at White & Case in Stockholm.
