The Bellow Scholar PRogram

COMMITTEE ON LAWYERING IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST (Bellow Scholar Committee)

CLINICAL SECTION of the AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF LAW SCHOOLS

The Bellow Scholar Program recognizes and supports the research projects of clinical law professors that reflect the ideals of Professor Gary Bellow - a pioneering founder of modern clinical legal education.

Congratulations to the newly selected 2019-2020 Bellow Scholars!

Every two years, the Bellow Scholar Program seeks innovative Project Proposals from clinical legal educators designed to improve the quality of justice in communities, enhance the delivery of legal services, and promote economic and social justice. In particular, the Committee is interested in recognizing and supporting projects that employ empirical analysis as an advocacy tool and involve substantial collaboration between law and other academic disciplines. Selected projects become the focus of information sharing, discussion, and critique at the annual AALS Clinical Conference and at annual workshops organized by the committee. Selected Scholars are appointed for a two-year term.

Each year the Bellow Scholars host two events: a workshop in the Fall (at alternating locations) and research presentations in the Spring (at the AALS Clinical Conference).

The committee chairs for 2018-2019 are Anna Carpenter (Tulsa) and Colleen Shanahan (Columbia). If you have questions or comments about the Bellow Scholar Program, please email bellowscholarprogram@gmail.com.
