Policy Fellows

Through our Leo Model Foundation Government and Public Affairs Initiative Visitors Program, leading policy and government experts enrich the intellectual life of the Law School community by sharing their expertise and on-the-ground perspective on law and policy with students and faculty.

Our Distinguished Policy Fellows — current and former government officials, policy makers, lawyers, and other high-level government staff — teach seminars, deliver guest lectures, engage in career conversations with students, and are integrated into the Law School community during their time here.
