Harvard Law Students: Apply to the Global Anticorruption Lab seminar next year! (Deadline: April 25)
April 21, 2014 – Matthew Stephenson
Dear LIDS Members:
I’m writing to encourage those of you who are interested in applying to participate in the Global Anticorruption Lab that I will be running this coming academic year. There is a description in the course catalogue, but I wanted to reach out to LIDS because this class might be of particular interest to students with interests in law & development, particularly anticorruption and good governance.
The Lab course is an opportunity to do independent research on a topic or topics of your choice, in a collaborative setting that provides opportunities for feedback not only from me, but from your classmates as well. Through the Lab course, you will contribute to the Global Anticorruption Blog (www.globalanticorruptionblog.com), reaching an audience that includes leading figures at the World Bank, Transparency International, UNDP, and other leading anticorruption organizations.
This year’s Lab had great representation from LIDS members, and I would love to get more LIDS members involved if possible. If you would like to learn more about this year’s Lab please feel free to email current Lab member and outgoing LIDS co-President Raj Banerjee at email@example.com. Raj would be delighted to chat about his experience!

Beth & Sarah’s Co-President Vision Statement: Institutionalizing LIDS
LIDS had a momentous 2013-2014 school year! Becky and Raj delivered on their promise to raise LIDS’s profile through our online presence, collaboration with our member schools, and events at HLS, such as the International Women’s Day Exhibition. LIDS embarked on an exciting initiative to connect with students at law schools around the world that are interested in development. And the Projects Team received a record number of proposals from organizations wanting to have an Orrick-LIDS team complete a project for them. Our goal for 2014-2015 is to build on that success and ensure that LIDS becomes institutionalized—both online as a space to debate law and development issues and at HLS and LIDS partner schools as a firmly established student organization.
