The Program on Law and Political Economy at Harvard Law School is pleased to announce its inaugural cohort of Student Fellows. The Student Fellowship in Law and Political Economy provides grants to law students and doctoral students who are carrying out research in the field of law and political economy. This year, we are fortunate to support a class of five terrific Student Fellows whose research projects examine the role of law in the construction of economic and social inequality, on power in economic and social relations, and on the political economy of market societies.
Tiran Rahimian Bajgiran is a first-year SJD student at Harvard Law School. His research investigates the political economy of worker power in data governance.
Ayelet Carmeli is a doctoral candidate in Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her research focuses on the comparative political economy of savings and investment policies in the context of the financialization of welfare states.
Matthias Petel is a second-year SJD Candidate at Harvard Law School. His research focuses on the history of capitalism, institutional political economy, and social justice in the context of climate change.
Arman Smigielski is a third-year JD student at Harvard Law School. His research focuses on how corporate structures and legal rules can create social harms.
Morgan Sperry is a second-year JD student at Harvard Law School. Her fellowship research examines how state courts might enshrine the right to abortion after Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
