HLS Center on the Legal Profession Presents Student Fellows, 2021-2022

Insight December 1, 2021

This year, the Harvard Law School (HLS) Center on the Legal Profession (CLP) is pleased to support three student fellows. The Student Fellowship Program is a one-year program designed for HLS students interested in learning more about the structures, norms, and dynamics of the global legal profession. Fellows conduct original, empirical research on the legal profession, produce scholarly pieces and “short form” thought leadership, and receive in-depth mentorship from a dynamic community of researchers and practitioners exploring issues ranging from legal careers to diversity and inclusion to globalization to legal education to innovation.

Genevieve Antono (“Gennie) is a student fellow with the Center on the Legal Profession, where she will be creating educational content to help law and pre-law students build commercial and industry awareness.

She is a 3L with interests in corporate practice (funds, M&A and capital markets), talent development and retention, and diversity in the legal profession. Prior to law school, Gennie worked as a Legal & Compliance Analyst for real estate private funds at The Blackstone Group in New York. She also completed summer internships at Wachtell, Simpson Thacher (New York and Hong Kong) and Clifford Chance (Singapore). In 2020, Gennie served as Co-President of the Harvard Association for Law and Business (HALB). At HALB, she hosted two seasons of the HALB Leadership Podcast (available on Spotify), which is aimed at demystifying the legal profession for a law and pre-law audience.

Daniel Eyal ’23

Daniel Eyal is a student fellow with the Center on the Legal Profession, where he will be exploring the questions that arise for law students and early career lawyers interested in career paths in federal prosecution and white collar criminal defense.

As a 2L at Harvard Law School, Daniel is passionate about studying and improving lawyers’ roles in strengthening democracy and the rule of law. Interested in ensuring that government is more transparent and accessible, Daniel served as a summer legal intern at the U.S. Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section, and he is fascinated by government and public interest lawyering more generally. Prior to his legal studies, Daniel served in politics and government, working mostly for a member of the Los Angeles City Council. Daniel earned his B.A. in Global Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and he is the first in his family to go to college or graduate school.

Sarah Sadlier ’22

Sarah Sadlier is a student fellow with the Center on the Legal Profession, where she is focused on completing a paper, “Invisible No More: Harvard Law School’s Native American Graduates and Their Contributions to Indian Country,” which endeavors to identify who Native HLS students were, describe their educational and tribal backgrounds, and chart their career trajectories.

Sarah is a JD Candidate and a History PhD Candidate at Harvard, specializing in Native American History with a secondary field in Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality (WGS). As an undergraduate at Stanford, she quadruple majored in American Studies (with Honors), History (with Honors), Iberian and Latin American Cultures, and Political Science (secondary major) with Distinction. She completed her master’s in Modern Thought and Literature in 2017 at Stanford and her master’s in History in 2019 at Harvard. She is the recipient of over fifty academic awards, grants, and fellowships, including Harvard Law School’s fully-funded merit fellowship and Harvard University’s Presidential Scholarship and Presidential Public Service Fellowship.

At Harvard Law School, Sarah is Vice President/Coordinating, Diversity & Outreach of the Harvard Law Review, an HLS Admissions Fellow, Co-Chair of the Law Review’s Public Interest Committee, the HLS Legal History Student Fellow, and a Legal Professions Center Student Fellow. In the past, she has served as the Co-President of the Native American Law Students Association, Student Liaison for the Disability Law Students Association, Co-Director of HLS Talks, and the ACS Director of Professor and Practitioner Engagement. She also was an editor on six HLS journals, a Student Government Academic Affairs Committee member, a Women’s Law Association Academic Affairs Committee member, and a West Coast Club representative. Over the last year, she has been a student in the Election Law Clinic, LGBTQ+ Advocacy Clinic, and Emmett Environmental Law & Policy Clinic.

With this fellowship, she hopes to continue working on the paper that she began in the Legal Profession seminar by conducting interviews and surveys of Harvard Law School’s Native American graduates. Preliminary findings showed that these students were highly service-oriented. More than three-quarters of students dedicated their work to increasing tribal sovereignty. They started and led tribal corporations, supported Indian economic development, taught American Indian law, fought for tribal interests in the Department of the Interior or the Department of Justice, became tribal judges and lawyers, or joined an Indian firm or non-profit. More often than not, they did a combination of these jobs over their lifetimes. Their lawyering and leadership has changed the face of Indian country. This study endeavors to ensure that Harvard Law School recognizes their achievements, as well.
