The Center on the Legal Profession Student Fellowship Program is a one-year program designed for Harvard Law School students interested in learning more about the structures, norms, and dynamics of the global legal profession. We are now seeking student fellows for the 2024-2025 academic year, (though we are open to students beginning their project in spring 2024 to continue through 2025).

As a Student Fellow, you will conduct original, empirical research on the legal profession, produce scholarly pieces and short blog posts (or videos or audio), and receive in-depth guidance from a dynamic community of researchers and practitioners exploring issues ranging from legal careers to diversity and inclusion to globalization to legal education to innovation.

Our Student Fellowship Program includes three main components:

  1. Producing an independent, empirical research paper project on the legal profession with the goal of publication in a scholarly journal and/or the Center’s digital magazine, The Practice (
  2. Creating short written, video, or audio for the Center’s various publications on a range of topics.
  3. Acting as an active member of our vibrant intellectual community, including mentorship and privileged access to Center workshops, conferences, and other events.
