***Now accepting applications for Spring 2023 LPE Student Fellows***
The LPE Student Fellowship is intended to foster research in the field of law and political economy. Fellows receive grant support of $2,500 per semester and are expected to make a significant commitment to writing a paper in law and political economy. In addition, fellows are required to attend the law and political economy workshop (whether they are registered for it or not) and present their work at an end-of-year fellows symposium. 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.
Applications for the 2023 Spring Term will be accepted on a rolling basis until January 6, 2023.
Interested applicants should submit the following:
- An academic/professional CV.
- A short description of the applicant’s background and interests in law and political economy.
- A synopsis of the research and writing the applicant intends to accomplish during the 2022-23 academic year.
- Previously written academic papers or other significant writing on law and political economy, if any.
- Unofficial graduate program and/or law school transcripts (optional).
- The name and email address of a Harvard (preferably HLS) faculty member who can serve as a reference. (You do not need a letter from them, only their permission to be listed as a reference).
