Princeton University's Program in Law and Public Affairs, which is based at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, has named five undergraduates and one graduate student as 2016 Arthur Liman Fellows in Public Interest Law. This fellowship will enable the students to spend eight to 10 weeks during the upcoming summer in an internship serving the needs of people and causes that might otherwise go unrepresented. The summer stipends are made possible by a generous donation from the Liman Foundation at the direction of Princeton alumna Emily Liman '85.
Liman Fellows are selected through a competitive application process in which they must demonstrate their commitment to public service through past and current activities. The students will begin their fellowship experience by participating in the annual Liman Public Interest Law Colloquium at Yale Law School from March 31 to April 1. There they will meet public interest advocates, legal scholars, government officials and the Liman Fellows from other schools participating in the program.
The 2016 Liman Fellows, comprising the tenth annual class, at Princeton University are:
- Ryan Dukeman '17, Woodrow Wilson School
- Abigail Gellman '17, Department of History
- Yangyi Li '17, Department of Economics
- James Sasso, Ph.D. candidate, Department of Politics
- Anthony Sibley '17, Department of Politics
