NEW YORK, NY - February 23, 2016 -  Baruch College Professor Donna Gitter has earned a Fulbright Distinguished Lecturing Award for travel to the Philippines.

Gitter is a professor of law at the Zicklin School of Business and will give lectures to audiences at major universities, professional organizations, and nongovernmental and government agencies in Metro Manila, Luzon, and Visayas during the 2016-2017 academic year.

I am eager to meet colleagues in the Philippines to begin a relationship of cultural and scholarly exchange relating to the law of business,” says Gitter, “and to bring back what I have learned to share with my students and peers at Baruch.”

Gitter has published numerous articles relating to judicial and legislative responses in the European Union and the United States to issues at the intersection of technology and ethics, such as biotechnology patenting and biomedical ethics.  These articles have appeared in the New York University Law Review, the Columbia Science and Technology Law Review, the Berkeley Journal of International Law, the Washington and Lee Law Review, and the George Mason Law Review.  She has also been invited to present her research at international conferences in Italy, Scotland, Portugal, England, and India, as well as in the United States.

Gitter graduated Phi Beta Kappa and cum laude from Cornell University where she earned a B.A. in Government.  She earned her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

With the support of the United States government and through binational partnerships with foreign governments, the Fulbright Scholarship Program sponsors U.S. and foreign participants for exchanges in all areas of endeavor, including the sciences, business, academe, public service, government, and the arts and continues to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
