Law School Fellowships tie Islam and human rights: Flanked by this fall’s two on-campus fellows, Jamila Bargach and Recep Senturk, the law school’s Abdullahi An-Na'im, director of the Islam and Human Rights Fellowship Program, is pleased with the progress of the effort. “We want people who are invested in transforming their societies and changing attitudes,” says An-Na’im.
