The Lewis International Law Center was dedicated in 1993 to the late Reginald F. Lewis of the Class of 1968, chairman and CEO of TLC Beatrice, and is the first major facility at Harvard named in honor of an African-American. It houses the International Legal Studies Library, consisting of approximately one-third of the Law Library's large international law collection. It is also the home of the Graduate and International Legal Studies Program. Each year lawyers and scholars from around the globe come to pursue an LL.M. or S.J.D. degree or spend time on writing and research. Harvard Law School offers the Reginald F. Lewis Fellowships for Law Teaching. The Lewis Fellowship program supports the training of prospective law teachers who will enhance the diversity of the profession. We especially encourage applications from candidates of color. The Lewis Fellow is required to prepare a major article for publication and has an opportunity to audit courses at the Law School.

"I am personally very excited that my work has taken me in the direction of emerging mobile technologies. There is so much rapid change taking place around the world because of the power of mobile devices to entertain, educate and literally shrink the world. There is so much good that can be done with technology like this that will advance goals like that of Reginald F. Lewis Foundation. My new client 'We Are Mobile' is harnessing the rise and rise of mobile phones to help an iconic charity, the Nelson Mandela Trust, to raise money from around the world to build the second only children's hospital in all of Southern Africa. At this VERY MOMENT there is only one dedicated children's hospital servicing the needs of 240 million people, compared to the USA where we have almost 1 for every one million people. 'WAM', has also cracked the traditional charity model of just taking and they have added 'giving' to donors to build a sustainable business model where everyone wins."
The Forbes Torch Awards will take place Dec. 8. 2010, 7:00 pm at the Harvard Club, New York, New York.
