Twenty Nine Students Receive Urban Fellows Certificates

Georgia State University College of Law’s Center for the Comparative Study of Metropolitan Growth awarded certificates to twenty nine Urban Fellows for successfully completing the program this year.

Urban Fellows students are selected through a competitive application process to participate in the year-long program.  Students are selected based on a clear interest in urban issues demonstrated through volunteer work, academic and professional experience and world travel.  The Urban Fellows Program provides students with an opportunity to enrich their studies with discussions about environmental, land use and urban issues with top decision makers through a special lecture series and invitations to special events.   Students also write an in-depth research paper on an urban issue of personal interest.  Select Urban Fellows research papers will be published this fall in the Journal of Comparative Urban Law and Policy.

“Urban Fellows has been such a rewarding experience.  Not only are we encouraged to dive deep into our research topic, we are also exposed to so many domestic and international issues in urban law and development,” said Caitlin Correa (J.D. ’19).
