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/Emile Noël 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:
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.
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.
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, ranging from US$30,000 to US$45,000 for the academic year (or from US$15,000 to US$22,500 per academic semester), subject to applicable tax(es).
