Student Working Paper Series
Many Urban Fellows select the program track that allows them to receive course credit for writing a research paper of publishable quality. Students select their research topic based on their interests. Many students use this as an opportunity to work closely with community groups, government officials, or other private entities on an important issue.
Student papers are made available on this website as a tool for law and policy makers.
