    The Liman Public Interest Program at Yale Law School includes the Liman Professor, the Director, and in the last few years, a Senior Fellow in Residence, who joins the program for two years to work on a variety of projects, participate in teaching, supervise students, as well as do research and writing. The focus is on criminal justice and prisoners’ rights. This work reflects Arthur Liman’s commitments and his service as chief counsel to the New York State Special Commission on Attica Prison; President of the Legal Aid Society of New York and of the Neighborhood Defender Services of Harlem; Chair of the Legal Action Center in New York City; and Chair of the New York State Capital Defender’s Office.

    Since its inception in 1996, the Liman Program has grown — from one post-graduate law school fellow to now more than 8-12 annually, for a total of 115 Law School graduate Fellows including this year’s incoming group. In addition, the Liman Program helps to support summer Fellows at Barnard, Brown, Harvard, Princeton, Spelman, Stanford, and Yale. Many Liman Fellows – past and current – work on criminal justice, prisoners’ rights, immigration detention, juvenile justice, post-conviction remedies, and re-entry.

    At the Law School, the weekly Liman Workshop regularly addresses the issues of over-incarceration and the isolation of individuals while in detention. Annual colloquia often take up these questions. For example, in 2016, the Liman Colloquium, Moving Criminal Justice, brought together practitioners, lawmakers, prison administrators, academics, and students to consider how criminal justice reform agendas are formulated, gain currency, and result in changes in laws and practices that produce consequences are both generative and harmful. In the Liman Project, students and faculty work together on research and advocacy on specific issues. This year, our projects include how to reduce the degrees of isolation imposed on prisoners and how to enable women and men in the federal prison system to be closer to their homes and families. In such efforts, we often collaborate with other institutions and organizations, including the Association of State Correctional Administrators, the American Bar Association, and John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

    The Liman Senior Fellowship

    The Senior Fellow—an experienced practitioner interested in the intersection of law, practice, scholarship, and policy—works on the challenges of access to legal services and on issues of the criminal justice system from detention through incarceration, release, and reentry. The goals of the fellowship are:

    To expand the attention paid by the legal academy to detention and incarceration by convening workshops, seminars, colloquia, and by crafting projects with students;

    To provide a forum for exploration of criminal justice issues, access to legal services, and civil and human rights.

    The Liman Senior Fellow joins the Liman Professor and Director in teaching students and in developing ongoing and new projects and classes. The Senior Fellow also participates in the administration of the summer fellows program and in the drafting of the annual Liman Report. The Senior Fellow also plays a significant role in leading the weekly Liman Workshop, in planning other Liman activities, and in shaping the annual Liman Colloquium.

    The Fellow will have time for scholarship and research, as well as time to develop curriculum and, in conjunction with faculty, to supervise students. Opportunities to collaborate on clinical projects may be available, especially in the second year. The Senior Fellowship is a two-year, full-time position; the starting date is decided upon mutually. The salary is competitive for such fellowships and is based upon experience. For more information, please contact Johanna Kalb, Liman Director, at
