About the Award

The Gary Bellow Public Service Award was created in 2001 to recognize excellence in public interest work at HLS and to honor Professor Bellow.  The Awards are given annually by the student body of Harvard Law School to a student and alumnus/a whose commitment to social justice makes us proud to be a part of the HLS community.  Past honorees have worked in a wide variety of areas including civil rights, labor, education, human rights, and domestic violence. The winners are honored at a reception in April.
