Dagen-Legomsky Fellowship Program

Through the generous support of the late Margaret and Irvin Dagen, in honor of Professor Stephen H. Legomsky, the Dagen-Legomsky Fellowship Program provides JD students with financial support to engage in exciting and meaningful summer work or study in international public interest law.

The Dagen-Legomsky Academy Fellowship awards cover the registration/tuition fee for the summer public interest programs at The Hague Academy and the Xiamen Academy of International Law and provides the selected student(s) a stipend to cover economy airfare, accommodation, and other related expenses for the duration of the program. The Hague Academy of International Law and the Xiamen Academy of International Law offer intensive three-week summer courses taught by leading international law scholars. For additional information, visit the academy websites. 

The Dagen-Legomsky Public Interest Fellowship awards provide students financial support for public interest work abroad during the summer. In addition to providing financial assistance, the Harris Institute also helps fellowship recipients in securing a desired placement.
