The Law and Political Economy Student Fellowships are intended to foster research in the field of law and political economy. Fellows receive a fellowship of $2,500 per semester and are expected to make a significant commitment to writing a paper in law and political economy and attending the law and political economy workshop, whether they are registered for it or not. Eligible students include 2L, 3L, and SJD students at Harvard Law School, as well as PhD students at Harvard University who work on the role of law in the construction of economic and social inequality, on power in economic and social relations, or on the political economy of market societies.
