The Program on Law and Political Economy at Harvard Law School is pleased to announce our second annual cohort of LPE Student Fellows. The Student Fellowship supports law and doctoral students to carry out research in the field of law and political economy. This year, we are fortunate to host a cohort of seven extraordinary Student Fellows whose research projects examine the role of law in the construction of economic and social inequality, power relations, and the political economy of market societies.
Joey Alpert is a third-year JD student at Harvard Law School, where he studies how antitrust issues in the private defense industry affect national defense spending and priorities. His research is inspired by his prior active duty service as a Surface Warfare Officer in the Navy, during which he earned a master’s degree in Defense and Strategic Studies from the United States Naval War College.
Iman Masmoudi is a third-year JD student at Harvard Law School who studies comparative Islamic and Anglo-American legal history from a distributive justice perspective. Before law school, she founded an ethical clothing cooperative in Tunisia and studied classical Islamic history at Cambridge and Harvard.
Dan Rohde is an SJD candidate at Harvard Law School, where he researches the legal history of money and banking, particularly in Canada. His dissertation research focuses on the Bank of Canada, though he has also researched and published on Canadian money in the colonial period and legal historiography. Before entering Harvard Law School, Dan worked at a union-side law firm, at a legal clinic, and, before that, as an elementary school teacher.
Applications for next academic year’s Student Fellowship in Law and Political Economy will open in June 2024. Questions about the fellowship can be directed to Sanjay Jolly ([email protected]).
