Opening Doors to Inquiry: The Summer 2016 Summer Research Diversity Fellowship

Winter 2017

Researching Law, Vol. 27, No. 4

Every summer for the last 28 years, the ABF has hosted four promising young scholars from diverse backgrounds for an eight-week research internship in Chicago. The Montgomery Summer Research Diversity Fellowship (Now the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship) was initiated by the ABF in 1988 as a way to help broaden the participation of minority students in empirical legal scholarship and to encourage them to pursue careers in that area. Since then, the ABF has hosted 118 accomplished, energetic, and inquisitive undergraduates with an interest in law and society studies. This edition of Researching Law highlights the exemplary Fellowship alum and details the research projects of the 2016 cohort.
