Policy Fellowships

We currently are accepting applications for the 2017-18 Legislative Policy Fellowship through November 15, 2017.

The Animal Law & Policy Fellowships provide opportunities for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to spend from three months to one year undertaking research, writing, and scholarly engagement on Animal Law & Policy projects that further the Program’s mission.

Fellows devote their time to scholarly activities in furtherance of their research agendas and to contributing to the work of the Animal Law & Policy Program. Fellows will be expected to participate in Program activities, contribute to the intellectual life of the Program, and are encouraged to organize one or more academic events related to their fellowship project. Fellows also have the opportunity to mentor students, assist with the placement and supervision of students in experiential learning opportunities, and contribute to the Animal Law & Policy Program’s broader presence.

Fellows have access to a wide range of resources offered by Harvard University. Fellows also are provided an office at HLS, a monthly stipend in an amount consistent with other Fellowship programs at HLS, and health insurance. More information on Policy Fellowship rules and benefits is available here.

Applicants must have an advanced degree (J.D., LL.M., S.J.D., Ph.D.). We particularly encourage applications from those who intend to produce outstanding scholarship and to contribute significantly to the Animal Law & Policy Program during the Fellowship period. Applicants are evaluated by the quality and significance of their research proposals and by their record of academic and professional achievement.
