The Bigelow program began in 1937 as a tutoring system before transitioning into the first-year writing course that still exists today. The Fellows themselves tend to lean toward an academic career, so the program provides them with an introduction to the responsibilities that a law professor has. Older fellows comment on the benefits of the program, and the current fellows' biographies are provided.
