Law and Ethics Fellowship

The 2024 Law and Ethics fellowship program is a two-term fellowship that introduces students to the study and application of ethics and the law.  During the winter term, students learn about the science of disagreement on the Supreme Court and the science of democratic accountability.  Students will discuss pending cases before the Supreme Court, all over dinner.  During the spring term, students learn about tech ethics and the law through our Burt Dorsett '53 and Roger S. Aaron '64 lecture series.

This fellowship program is a way to advance intellectual fun at Dartmouth.  That means that fellows commit to attend all eight sessions, the public lectures listed below and read prior materials before each session. The Institute plans to accept no more than 14 students. The fellowship program is open to all sophomore, junior and senior undergraduates from all academic backgrounds who have not yet participated in the program.

Applications for the 2024 fellowship program will be available in fall, 2023.
