Global Fellowships for New York University School of Law Now Available for the 2016-2017 Academic Year

New York University School of Law is currently accepting applications for the Global Fellows Program

Deadline: January 11, 2016                   

The Global Fellows Program offers an opportunity for academics, practitioners, government officials and post-doctoral scholars from around the world to spend a semester or academic year in residence at NYU School of Law.  The principal objective of the Global Fellows Program is the production of scholarship through the advancement of research. We have a notable history of hosting distinguished scholars, judges, lawyers and government officials who wish to spend time advancing their scholarship and engaging in the intellectual life of the Law School.  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.  The primary goal 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.

 

In recent years, we have introduced a specialized post-doctoral programming component designed especially for our Post-Doctoral Global Fellows (fellows who have attained their doctoral degrees within the past four years and who have not yet secured a tenure-track academic appointment at an institution), in partnership with the JSD program, to provide opportunities for the exploration of methodological questions in legal research and for participating in workshops where works-in-progress may be presented.

 

The Global Fellows Program currently offers fellowship opportunities for scholars in the following categories:

 

  1. Global and Senior Global Research Fellows

 

Global Research Fellows are tenured or tenure-track academics with a demonstrable background of strong legal scholarship.  More senior academics (for example, faculty members tenured for ten years or more) may be designated as Senior Global Research Fellows at the discretion of the selection committee.

 

  1. Global and Senior Global Fellows from Practice & Government

 

Global Fellows from Practice & Government are government officials, judges, officials from international organizations and lawyers in private practice who wish to take a semester or academic year away from their posts to engage in serious scholarship.  More experienced officials and practitioners may be

designated as Senior Global Fellows from Practice & Government at the discretion of the selection committee.

 

  1. Post-Doctoral Global Fellows

 

Post-Doctoral Global Fellows are post-doctoral scholars who have attained their doctoral degrees within the past four years and who have not yet secured a tenure-track academic appointment at an institution.  Post-Doctoral Global Fellows meeting these eligibility requirements may be considered for a limited number of merit-based post-doctoral stipends of US$30,000 for the academic year (or US$15,000 per academic semester), subject to applicable tax(es).

Emile Noël Fellowship Program

Deadline: January 11, 2016

 

The principal objective of the Emile Noël Fellowship program is scholarship and the advancement of research on the themes prioritized by the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice, which include the following overarching areas: European Integration, general issues of International (principally WTO), and Regional Economic Law and Justice and Comparative Constitutional Law. The expectation is that the residency of our Fellows at NYU School of Law will result in at least one paper that will be of sufficient quality to be published as a Jean Monnet Working Paper. During the period of residence, we encourage our Fellows to participate fully in the life of the Law School and of NYU in general, not to mention the endless possibilities that New York City has to offer. The Fellows will be expected to play an active role in the activities of the Center, particularly the Emile Noël Fellows Forum, which is the vehicle through which work is presented and discussed, and encapsulates the idea of the Program – the University as a community of scholars. The Forum takes place on a regular basis throughout the fall and spring semesters.

 

The Jean Monnet Center at NYU School of Law currently offers fellowship opportunities for scholars in the following categories:
