7 Elite Law Students Selected for Inaugural Douglass Fellowship Program

The Institute welcomes its first class of Douglass Fellows to Washington D.C. Thursday for a two-day fellowship orientation

Inspired by Frederick Douglass’ commitment to freedom and justice, the Human Trafficking Institute established the Douglass Fellowship to provide outstanding law students the opportunity to research, support, and engage in the global fight against human trafficking.

The seven Douglass Fellows were selected through a competitive process based on their demonstrated academic ability and commitment to this issue. They include students from Columbia, Duke, Pepperdine, Stanford, Vanderbilt, and Virginia School of Law.

The Douglass Fellows will serve from September through May and will support the Institute’s research efforts to provide clear, data-driven materials for scholars and criminal justice practitioners engaged in combating human trafficking.
