Graduate Students

The Program in Law and Public Affairs is pleased to invite law-engaged Ph.D. and policy students to a special reception to meet the 2009-2010 LAPA Visiting Fellows (and for them to meet you!) on Wednesday, September 16. There are two agenda items for the reception: a) meeting each other, and b) talking about what we’ll be doing this year.

LAPA continues to expand its programming for graduate students by offering opportunities for all students with a shared interest in law to explore issues of mutual concern, and by continuing its two highly successful series:

Law-Engaged Graduate Students (LEGS) Seminars designed primarily for Ph.D. students from different graduate programs on campus, and

“Law in the Public Service” discussions primarily for public policy students.

Graduate students are encouraged to attend LAPA Seminars and public lectures, and may be invited to participate in conferences sponsored or cosponsored by LAPA.

Among the 2008-2009 programs for all graduate students were: Brunch and private discussion with The Honorable Dorit Beinisch, President of the Supreme Court of Israel; and a National Security Council seminar and simulation with Distinguished Practitioner-in-Residence John B. Bellinger III ’82 , former Senior Associate Counsel to President George W. Bush and Legal Adviser to the National Security Council.

We would very much appreciate hearing from you at your earliest convenience as to whether or not you will be able to join us for the reception. Please e-mail Judi Rivkin by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, September 14, at to respond, or telephone 609-258-8377 if you have any questions.
