Lawrence Lederman Fellowships in Law and Economics
To foster research and study in the area of law, economics and business, each year NYU Law School offers seven Lawrence Lederman Fellowships to second year law school students who want to write a research paper in Law and Economics or Law and Business.
Lederman Fellows receive a $5,000 fellowship to write a research paper under the close supervision of a faculty member.
Fellows also participate in a workshop, held shortly after they are selected, at which the Fellows present an early draft of their paper to a group of faculty advisors and the other Fellows and receive detailed comments and suggestions. In their third-year, Fellows present their finished paper.
Each year at graduation, NYU Law School offers a prize to the best paper in Law and Economics. Fellows may participate in this contest as well.
The deadline for submitting applications is: March 4, 2013.
Applications should be submitted to Jerome Miller, Vanderbilt Hall, Room 411, email@example.com.
Inquiries regarding this fellowship program may be directed to Jennifer.Arlen@nyu.edu.
