Aaron Scholar Program at the University of Miami School of Law

The Ethics Institute partners with the Center for Ethics and Public Service at the University of Miami School of Law to provide an intensive five-day seminar in applied ethics and the law. Professor Anthony Alfieri (University of Miami Professor of Law and Dean's Distinguished Scholar) and Professor Aine Donovan work with a select group of Dartmouth undergraduate students to explore issues of legal ethics, conflict resolution and community service.  Annual program during December break.

I found my time as an Aaron Scholar at the University of Miami Law School to be worthwhile and intellectually rewarding. Throughout the speaker series and discussions, I learned about how law shapes many of the realities that communities experience, from rising sea levels to standardized testing gaps. I was also inspired after meeting many legal professionals who have devoted their careers to improve the justice system and serve people in Miami. Finally, the program allowed me to broaden my career plans, and also to form friendships with fellow Dartmouth students._Reem Chamseddine '17

Participating in the Aaron Scholars Program has been such a privilege. During this enriching program, we learned about how the law and ethics affect environmental preservation, public service initiatives, and entrepreneurship. In addition to listening to informative and interesting lectures by faculty members, we were able to see first-hand how the law and ethics influenced our society during our field trips to the Historic Black Church Program and The Lab Miami. The Aaron Scholars Program has been a rewarding experience. I am very grateful for the memories and friendships that I have made – thank you Dartmouth College for this amazing opportunity! _Jonathan Lu '19
