2014-15 Global Fellows Program at NYU School of Law

Deadline: January 6, 2014

NYU School of Law is now accepting applications for the 2014-15 Global Fellows Program. The Global Fellows Program brings academics, researchers, scholars, practitioners and post-doctoral students from around the world to NYU for up to one year to conduct and present their research for future publication. The aim of the Global Fellows Program is the enhancement of research and it is expected that participation in the Program will result in a substantial publishable piece of scholarship.

Fellows are welcome to participate in academic activities such as fora, lectures, colloquia, seminars and conferences. They are also invited to various social events, including some organized specifically for global fellows and others aimed at the broader community. Through the Global Fellows Forums, Global Fellows share their research with colleagues, students, and faculty and receive comment and feedback. In this way, they contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School and provide an opportunity for the community to learn about current law research from a global perspective and in a wide range of topics.
