Legislative Policy Fellowship

Please note that Harvard Law School’s Animal Law & Policy Program is not currently accepting applications for the Legislative Policy Fellowship.

The Animal Law & Policy Program Legislative Policy Fellowship is a full-time 4-month Fellowship to examine policy implications of proposed and potential legislation seeking to prevent U.S. states from regulating the in-state sale of “agricultural products” produced outside state borders.

The Fellowship will provide an opportunity for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on an issue that furthers the mission of the Animal Law & Policy Program.

Candidates with a JD, LLM, or SJD are welcome to apply. The Fellowship will pay a stipend of $5,000 per month and the Program will provide student assistants to aid in the research. The Fellowship preferably would commence by December 1, 2017, and can be conducted remotely.

The deadline to submit applications is November 15, 2017. To apply for this Legislative Policy Fellowship, please submit the following materials via the online application form:

  • a curriculum vitae
  • a recent publication or a writing sample (approximately 25 pages in length). All publications or writing samples should be in English.

You also will be asked to arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent directly from your referees to the Program via our online application system by November 24, 2017.
