The Chayes International Public Service Fellowships, dedicated to the memory of Professor Abram Chayes ’49, provide Harvard Law School students with the opportunity to spend eight weeks during the summer working abroad with governmental or non-governmental organizations concerned with issues of an international scope or relevant to countries in transition. This summer, 15 Chayes Fellows will work with organizations based in 11 countries.
In 2022, six Harvard Law School students were selected as Cravath International Fellows. During Winter Term, they pursued independent clinical placements or research projects with an international, transnational, or comparative law focus, exploring legal frameworks and practices in six countries. Juliette Brezin ’23, Mohammed Jagana ’22, and Catherine Cole ’22 (pictured above, left to right) share their stories.
