with New Fellowship
|| 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
When physicians slip a needle in the arm of a Death
Row prisoner, they are operating under a very different set of
legal and ethical principles than the Hippocratic Oath that counsels
doctors to “do no harm.” As Penn Law’s first Sharswood
Fellow, Nadia Sawicki, L’04, GR’04 will spend this year examining
the intersection of law and medical ethics.
In doing so, she will not only be the first Sharswood Fellow,
but one of the few in the country to participate in a Law Review-
led program to groom legal academics. The Sharswood
Fellowship was established by the University of Pennsylvania
Law Review after its editorial board discovered that only a small percentage of Penn Law alumni enter academia. The fellowship,
which funds a year of research, writing and teaching in residence,
is designed to counter that trend.
