Student Fellows Program Launched by the Center for Law and Religion

Thursday, September 29, 2011

The Center for Law and Religion recently launched its Student Fellows Program. The inaugural Fellows are:

  • Andrew Hamilton ’13
  • Yosefa Heber ’13
  • Jordan Hummel ’13
  • Dan Strecker ’12

The one-year fellowship provides four students, selected on the basis of academic record and a demonstrated interest in law and religion, with analytic training and exposure to the growing field of law and religion. Along with Professors Mark L. Movsesian and Marc O. DeGirolami, the Fellows are helping to develop the Center’s new blog, CLR Forum, as well as its Facebook and Twitter sites. In particular, the Fellows are helping to maintain CLR Forum’s Scholarship Roundup, an online collection of new academic work in law and religion, and are contributing short commentary on law and religion issues in the news. The Fellows will also help with faculty research projects and with events the Center has planned for the 2011-12 academic year.

“I’m delighted to welcome this first group of Fellows and look forward to working with them to build our Center, which is now entering its second year,” said Professor Movsesian, the Center’s Director. “It is an honor to serve as an inaugural fellow at the Center,” said Hummel. “By working with Professors DeGirolami and Movsesian and collaborating with the other fellows, I’m learning first-hand about the role the law plays in everyday life and the importance of contemporary law and religion issues.” Adds Heber: “I am really enjoying my work with the Center. I’m free to research and write on many different law and religion topics, and am able to explore these subjects in depth. This is a rare opportunity for a second-year law student and I am grateful for it.”
