Aziza Ahmed06.01.17 — Professor Aziza Ahmed, an internationally renowned expert in health law, criminal law and human rights, has been selected as a fellow with the Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) at Princeton University. She will spend the 2017-2018 academic year developing her work on law, feminism and science into a book with particular emphasis on legal and policy responses to HIV. 

“It is a great honor to have been selected for the LAPA fellowship. I’m looking forward to spending the year with the inspiring and vibrant community of fellows and faculty at Princeton,” said Ahmed, whose scholarship has appeared in the University of Miami Law Review, American Journal of Law and Medicine, University of Denver Law Review, Harvard Journal of Law and Gender, Boston University Law Review (online), and the American Journal of International Law (online), among other journals.

Each class of LAPA fellows brings to Princeton expertise and experience in law and related subjects. LAPA fellows include independent scholars, lawyers and judges who devote the major portion of their one-year residency at Princeton to their own research and writing on law-related subjects of empirical, interpretive, doctrinal and/or normative significance. In addition, LAPA fellows participate in biweekly seminars, weekly luncheon discussion groups and public events and conferences.
