Visiting Fellowships 2020-2021

Applications due January 15, 2020

Harvard Law School’s Program on Law and Society in the Muslim World invites applications for Visiting Fellowships for the 2020-2021 academic year. This fellowship provides opportunities for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on Islamic law and society. We are particularly interested in applicants whose work focuses on human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, minority rights, animal welfare and rights, constitutional law, food law, environmental law and climate change in particular, migration and refugee studies, LGBTQ issues, and related areas.

We welcome applicants with a JD, LLM, SJD, PhD or other comparable degree who are interested in spending from one month up to one academic year in residence at Harvard Law School working on an independent project. We seek applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds, academic traditions, and scholarly interests.

Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $5,000 per month, commensurate with their education and experience. While Fellows will devote the majority of their time to their research projects, they are expected to participate in Program activities and contribute to the intellectual life of the Program. Fellows are expected to deliver a lecture or workshop related to their topic of interest. Under certain conditions, a PLS fellowship may be combined with another fellowship or award.

The deadline to submit all application materials (including letters of recommendation) is January 15, 2020 to be considered for a fellowship term during the 2020-2021 academic year. Click here for additional information and how to apply.
