Student Work

The Shareholder Rights Project (SRP) provides students with the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience with shareholder rights work. The SRP works on behalf of public pension funds and charitable organizations seeking to improve corporate governance at publicly traded companies in which they are shareowners, as well as on research and policy projects related to corporate governance. In addition to clinical work, students will participate in classroom sessions to provide background and knowledge that complements the work undertaken in the clinic.

Enrollment requires an application process and is open to Harvard Law School 2L, 3L and LLM students who have taken Corporations or are taking Corporations in the Fall term. To apply, students must submit a statement of interest (maximum 200 words), a resume, an academic transcript (unofficial or official), and can elect to submit a writing sample of no more than 15 pages (one sample only). Applications should be addressed to the instructors and submitted to Emily Lewis at Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and interested students are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
