Fellowships

  • Program in Law and Public Affairs Fellowships, Princeton University
    Annual residential fellowships for “world-class experts” on law, “drawn from law schools, the social sciences, the humanities, and from the world of policy-making and legal practice.” Fellows often teach a course during the term of the fellowship.
  • Samuel L. Golieb Fellowships, New York University Law School
    Two to three residential fellowships granted annually to young legal historians.
  • American Bar Foundation
    In the past, ABF has offered annual residential fellowships for advanced social science graduate students working on legal topics, as well as visiting fellowships for legal scholars. As of 2006, these fellowship programs are suspended. ABF continues to invite applications from both graduate students and scholars for the status of visiting fellow. Visiting fellows receive work space and possibly a computer at the ABF in Chicago, though no stipend or other financial support. The Foundation also continues to offer Fellowships for its Montgomery Summer Diversity Program, aimed at undergraduates “from diverse backgrounds” who would like to gain experience in legal research.
  • Raoul Berger Visiting Fellowship in Legal History, Harvard University Law School
    One-year fellowship with $28,600 stipend, including health coverage and research expenses, for young scholars, typically holding the J.D. and Ph.D., embarking on a career in legal history, based either in law or history.
  • J. Willard Hurst Fellowship in Legal History, University of Wisconsin Law School
    Renewable one-year post-doctoral fellowship in legal history, with “modest stipend,” and full integration into UW’s legal history community.
  • J. Willard Hurst Summer Institute in Legal History, University of Wisconsin
    Biannual, two week institute, run by leading scholars in the field, for advanced graduate students and untenured faculty who are specializing in legal history. The Institute takes care of all expenses for those Fellows selected to participate.
