Newly created fellowships and tuition debt relief at two law schools were announced in January, as were three fellowships in international affairs at New York University sponsored by Manatt, Phelps & Phillips. Graduates of Columbia Law School may apply for two new programs — the David W. Leebron Human Rights Fellowship, named for the dean of the school from 1996 to 2004, and the Henkin-Stoffel Human Rights Fellowship, in the name of Professor Louis Henkin. The Leebron fellowship is a $20,000 grant enabling a graduate to spend one year at home or abroad. The Henkin-Stoffel fellowship, worth $70,000, will fund two years of work abroad. Both will be administered by the school’s Center for Public Interest Law. At Cornell Law School in Ithaca, the Sarah Betsy Fuller Social Justice Fund expands the school’s student loan assistance program for graduates who take low-paying public interest jobs. The fund, named for the late professor and civil legal services lawyer, will make up to two grants annually. The grants will average $5,000 to $7,000, based on applicants’ indebtedness and public interest law salary. Ronald S. Katz, a Manatt Phelps partner and former Rhodes scholar, created three $25,000 “Torch Prize” fellowships for international graduate students at New York University, allowing students to conduct one-year research projects abroad in conjunction with doctoral dissertations. According to a statement from the law firm, the Torch fellowships are meant to improve understanding between the United States and other nations by “shining light back on what has made America the country it is today.”
