ILSP: Law and Social Change offers yearly travel grants up to $1,000 to Harvard Law School students or Harvard University graduate students pursuing research trips related to work on or the study of Islamic law. The grants are awarded on a competitive basis, and we consider all projects associated with Islamic law or treating the legal systems of Muslim countries, for both independent research and internships.
We are pleased to announce that travel grants have been awarded to three students for winter-term 2017 research. Katherine Gonzalez will travel to Kuala Lumpur for her project, “Unconstitutional Corporal Punishment? The Movement for an Islamic Penal Code in Malaysia and Its Impact on Muslim Women”; Malik Ladhani (JD ’18) will travel to Kyrgyzstan to work on “Environmental Protection in the Kyrgyz Constitution”; and Myra Siddiqui will travel to Karachi and Lahore for her research on “Disability Rights in Pakistan.”
