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 principal objective of the Global Fellows Program at NYU School of Law is the production of scholarship and 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.
The Global Fellows Program continues to reach out to universities around the world to encourage application and participation in this program. Past Global Fellows have gone on to become well-respected scholars in their area of expertise and have been invited back to the Law School as Global Law Faculty. Potential fellows are encouraged to review the extensive course offerings, colloquia and special events on this and the Law School's web site to better understand the ways in which they may be enriched by their time at NYU School of Law and the Law School enriched by them.
