Barer Institute for Law and Global Human Services
The Barer Institute was created by a gift from UW Regent and law school campaign chair Stan Barer '63 and his wife, Alta. The Institute, is an interdisciplinary
effort based in the law school, focusing on the multidisciplinary role of law in
promoting health, education, and economic development. The goal of the Institute
is to utilize lawyers as leaders in providing advice and solutions to these
issues in lower and middle income developing countries. Currently, the Inaugural
Class of Barer Institute Fellows are earning their LL.M. degrees in Sustainable
Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-14
class of Fellows.
