The MacArthur Fellows Program awards unrestricted $625,000 fellowships to talented
individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their
creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction. Here are biographies of
this year’s 24 fellows. Only one is a lawyer, and none are legal academics.
Does this statistic tell us something about the awards process or something
about the participation of lawyers in creative pursuits?
