Lawrence Lederman Fellowships in Law and Economics

The Lederman Fellowship Program aims to foster student research in law & economics and to create an environment that fosters collaboration among students and faculty interested in law & economics. 

Lederman Fellows receive a $5,000 fellowship to write a research paper under the close supervision of a faculty member.   

Lederman Fellows take a series of courses that provide a foundation in the concepts and methodologies of law & economics. The centerpiece of the fellowship program is a research paper in law & economics that each fellow will develop, advised by a NYU faculty member. Fellows participate in a series of workshops and colloquium meetings in which they present their work to the faculty directors and other fellows.

Each year at graduation, the Law School offers a prize to the best paper in Law and Economics. Fellows may participate in this contest as well.

Applications should be submitted electronically to Ryan Gibson,
