LAPA names '08 Arthur Liman Fellows

Two Princeton graduate students, four undergraduates

The Woodrow Wilson School's Program in Law and Pubilc Affairs (LAPA) is pleased to announce the selection of its 2008 Arthur Liman Fellows in Public Interest Law. The Liman Program enables University students to spend 10 weeks during the upcoming summer in an internship serving the needs of people and causes that might otherwise go unrepresented.

The four undergraduates and two graduate students, selected through a competitive application process, will begin their program by participating in the Eleventh Annual Liman Public Interest Program Colloquium at Yale Law School on March 6-7. They will join advocates, scholars, government officials and fellows from the five other participating schools to explore “Liman at the Local Level: Public Interest Advocacy and American Federalism.”

The 2008 Arthur Liman Fellows are:

  • Felipe Cala, 1st Year Ph.D. Student in Spanish and Portuguese Language and Cultures
  • Michelle Phelps, 1st Year Ph.D. Student in Sociology
  • Ryan Ebanks ’09, Independent: Political Psychology
  • Mark Zaichen Jia ‘10
  • Lawrence Kornreich ’09, Religion
  • Emily Kathryn Stehr ’08, History

The Liman Fellows Program was created by the Liman Family Foundation in honor of Arthur Liman’s long and distinguished career in public interest law and was established at Princeton through the generosity of Emily Liman ’85. Based at Yale Law School where Arthur Liman had been a student, the program also has undergraduate fellows at Princeton, Barnard, Brown, Harvard, Spelman, and Yale. Princeton is the only university to have a Liman Fellows Program for graduate students.
