3L Justin Hosman has been selected as the Carnegie Council Ethics Fellow for the Future for the year 2014-15. He was nominated by Deen Chatterjee, Senior Fellow at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law and a Global Ethics Fellow of the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs in New York City. This appointment will allow Hosman to engage in discussing the ethical implications of critical global issues with other Carnegie Ethics Fellows from universities in the U.S. and other parts of the world on Carnegie’s Global Ethics Network, a virtual platform for discussion and the exchange of ideas. In addition, Hosman will get an all-expense paid trip to New York City this October to present his research and meet with the other Fellows at Carnegie’s centennial conference and celebrations.
In addition, Hosman’s entry in the Carnegie Council’s 2014-15 Trans-Pacific Student Essay Contest on “Ethics for a Connected World” is featured on Carnegie’s Global Ethics Network. His essay, titled “A World Under Watch: The Promises and Threats of Surveillance in the United States and the Philippines,” a collaboration with Angelo Lagman of the Philippines, has been the most viewed essay in the contest. There were collaborative entries from the United States and 16 Asian countries. Deen Chatterjee coordinated the student entries from the College and helped the Council in promoting the contest.
Hosman said, “The College of Law offers some unique classes that have allowed me to think about the ethical implications of the law. In addition, the professors have done an excellent job of teaching me to look past the laws to the policies that inspire them. I am currently enrolled in the Justice Through Research think tank. This class has provided another opportunity to engage the law from an international ethical standpoint.”
