In 2018, 13 Harvard Law School students were selected as Chayes International Public Service Fellows. This program, established in 2001 and dedicated to the memory of HLS Professor Abram Chayes ’49, provides students with the opportunity to spend eight weeks during the summer working with governmental or non-governmental organizations concerned with issues of an international scope or relevant to countries in transition. Their projects can take many forms; this year, the summer work undertaken by Chayes Fellows focused on issues ranging from refugee assistance in Lebanon to employment and administrative matters, international anti-corruption law, and environmental governance in China, among others.
