Inaugural YLJ Summer Fellowships Awarded
For the first time, the Journal will be providing financial support to first- and second-year Yale Law School students who spend a portion of this summer on academic writing projects. Our goal is to give more students the opportunity to devote their time to academic writing and thereby to broaden the pipeline of Note submissions for YLJ.
The selection process for the inaugural Summer Writing Fellowships is now complete. The eight recipients are:
- David Barillari '15
- Katherine Demby '16
- Liz Deutsch '16
- Rose Goldberg '15
- Daniela Nogueira '16
- Geoff Shaw '16
- Claire Simonich '16
- Jonas Wang '16
Each of the fellowship recipients will submit his or her project for consideration as a Note in Volume 124 of the Journal. Fellowship projects receive no preference in the Notes selection process, and the projects will be reviewed blindly by the Notes Committee on the same terms as other Notes.
We are very happy to be able to provide this added support for academic writing by Yale Law School students and will continue to look for other opportunities to do so. The Journal will hold another fellowship selection round in the fall of 2014.
