Special Tribunal for Lebanon Recruiting Lawyers

A reader of this blog asked me to advertise the following vacancy:

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon is looking to recruit Lebanese lawyers and jurists for its National Visiting Professionals program. The positions are relatively well paid at over 1000 euros per month and include travel costs to The Hague. This would be a great opportunity to gain exposure and training in an international court and to contribute knowledge and experience in Lebanese law at the same time.

Make sure to read the vacancy announcement on their website, and have a look at the other jobs advertised as well while you’re there.

While we’re on the subject of announcements, Nick Noe asked me to let you all know about a new program that Mideastwire is sponsoring:

Mideastwire.com, in partnership with The Syria Report, is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for the first Damascus Exchange. The two-week program August 1-15 will engage students from around the world in a multifaceted discussion of some of the key issues facing Syria and the region.

The Damascus Exchange program rests on three tracks:

Academic – Participants will attend a series of seminars led by leading academics and public intellectuals in Syria. Topics will include: Economic reform challenges; The evolving relationship between Syria and Turkey; Syria’s role in the Middle East peace process; Arab nationalism; Hydro-politics in the Levant; and, Doing business in Syria: Barriers, opportunities and practices.

Language – Participants will have the option of attending 20 hours of Arabic language instruction. Modules will be available at different levels.

Dialogue with Leaders – Participants will have the opportunity to meet, listen and engage political, economic and religious leaders in Syria.

For more information, check out the website.

If any other readers out there want to place a Lebanon-related classified ad on this blog (goats for sale, olive oil soap, etc.), well, you can’t. Not even if you send me the text for the ad and $350 to Qifa Nabki Worldwide Headquarters, Carrel #566, Widener Library 5th Floor, Cambridge MA 02138.

  1. I think in this case the fringe benefits are more important. Do the lawyers get free life insurance, and if so, how much?

  2. I am a Dutch national and lived in The Hague for 9 years. If the first position is based in The Hague then trust me Euro 1,000 cannot be the salary, maybe you missed a zero?

  3. How much for the goat?

  4. Oh wait, forget it.

    I just realized ‘goats for sale’ was the title of ‘dialogue with leaders’ program.

    Yuk-yuk-yuk … 🙂

  5. Innocent Criminal,

    The advert says the monthly salary would be 1600 euros for those based in Holland and 1150 for those in Beirut. That’s not bad considering it seems to be a temporary fellowship-type thing and not a permanent position.

  6. More apropos of Lebanon would be a personal ad —

    “Influential Za’im looking for adventurous and generous foreign leader for a relationship. Most be open-minded and willing to experiment regarding honesty and human rights. All serious cash offers considered.”

  7. I know of two students who would be interested in the Damascus Exchange provided the two week curriculum includes instructions on how to walk on water.

  9. Carl,

    that’s not just poor, its TERRIBLE. in 2003 i used to work in the stock room of a a clothing store and used to make the absolute minimum wage which at the time (it’s gone up since then) was 1,230 euros. trust me, these are not well paying jobs. you need at least double that.

  10. I am not saying people shouldnt take the job based on the salary. All i am disbuting is this line “The positions are relatively well paid at over 1000 euros per month”

  11. So they are now dishing out “Visiting Professionals program”. Its seems that they have a lot of time on their hands. Who is paying for those: Cassini, Mirza! 1000 euros is the price of Saad (formerly Eddine) Hariri’s daily meals.

  12. I don’t really see how this flotilla strategy has been the winning strategy. Israel may get a lot of bad press for a while, but that is nothing compared to the fact that in any regional conflict, Arabs are going to lose.

    If Israel is itching for war, why give it more excuses?

  13. This so-called tribunal, STL is a CIA inspired charade to cover the tracks of the real perpetrators of the terror/assassinations in Lebanon and Syria by Asef SHAWKAT… acting on behalf of the infamous White House Murder INC,CIA+MOSSAD.
    STL is a bad JOKE from its inception.
