TU Law Students Secure Internships at the Hague
Tuesday, February 01, 2011
TU College of Law 2Ls Sara Sharp and Arthur Loyd have secured summer internships at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), a United Nations court dealing with war crimes that occurred in the Balkans in the 1990s. Sharp and Loyd will be working at The Hague in the Netherlands.
The opportunity presented itself after Loyd contacted Colonel Linda Murnane, a former military judge who was working at the ICTY. Murnane allowed Sharp and Loyd to participate in a one-week program for U.S. military cadets at the Hague in the summer of 2010. "It is truly amazing what experiences present themselves to you if you just get up the courage to ask about them," Sharp said.
