We are pleased to announce Sarah Weiner (HLS ’15) and Beth Nehrling (HLS ’15) as the incoming Co-Presidents of the Harvard International Law and Development Society for the academic year 2014-2015. Sarah and Beth are inspiring in their commitment to international development and their strong vision for LIDS going forward. Read about their vision for LIDS in the coming year below. We hope you will join us in congratulating Sarah and Beth!

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.
