Gary Bellow Public Service Awards

We’d like to invite you to nominate an HLS student and/or alumnus/a for the Gary Bellow Public Service Award. It’s easy to do!

The Gary Bellow Public Service Award was created in 2001 in honor of Professor Gary Bellow. Professor Bellow was the founder and former faculty director of Harvard Law School’s Clinical Programs. Two awards are given annually by the student body of Harvard Law School to one HLS student and one HLS alumnus/a whose commitment to social justice and excellence in public interest work embody the spirit of Gary Bellow’s work and make us proud to be a part of the HLS community. The awards process is completely student-run.
Please nominate individuals whose work in social justice and public interest inspires you. Any HLS student, affiliate, or alumnus may make nominations, and you may nominate yourself, a fellow student, or an alumnus. Email completed nominations to  gary.bellow.award at
  Nominations are due Monday, February 27, 2012, by 9 p.m. The format for the nomination email is below.
If you have any questions, please email
Thank you!
