O’Brien Graduate Fellowships for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism 2020 to study at McGill University

Deadline: December 15, 2019

Applications are invited for the O’Brien Graduate Fellowships for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism 2020. The O’Brien Graduate Fellowships were established in 2005 through a very generous gift from David O’Brien for outstanding Masters or Doctoral students studying in the area of human rights and legal pluralism in the Faculty of Law, McGill University.

McGill’s graduate programs in law are the most extensive in Canada. Courses draw upon the civilian and common law traditions, but also include diverse legal traditions, legal theory, international law, environmental law, health law, human rights law, comparative private and public law, and air and space law. O’Brien Fellows become members of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism, a focal point for innovative legal and interdisciplinary research, dialogue, and outreach on human rights and legal pluralism.

Fellowship

  • The Fellowships for LL.M students are valued at a maximum of $25,000 per annum, tenable for 1 year. For D.C.L. students the Fellowships are valued at $35,000 per annum, renewable twice (if eligibility is maintained).

Eligibility

  • This Fellowship Program is an entrance scholarship. As such, students who are currently enrolled in the LL.M. or D.C.L. program at McGill are not eligible to apply;
  • Successful applicants will have an outstanding academic record and a strong research proposal in the field of human rights and legal pluralism.

Application

Applicants for this scholarship must also simultaneously submit an application for admission to one of the graduate programs by the stipulated deadline.
