The NYU Law Fellows Program has been suspended for academic year 2016-17.
The application deadline for AY 2016-17 will be announced in the 2016 spring semester.
In a pilot effort, NYU’s Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) and the School of Law announce a new opportunity for GSAS doctoral students with an interest in legal scholarship. The NYU Law Fellows Program will make it possible for several second- and third-year doctoral students to be affiliated with the Law School. Fellows will continue to take courses and complete other requirements in their doctoral programs while having opportunities for sustained intellectual engagement with Law School faculty and students.
GSAS doctoral students in good standing and who will be in their second or third years of graduate study in 2015-16 are eligible to apply. Applicants should expect to take a minimum of two courses at the Law School as part of their elective requirements toward their GSAS degree during 2015-2016.
Beyond formal coursework, NYU Law Fellows will:
- meet regularly with a faculty advisor from the Law School;
- take part in the Law School’s year-long colloquium, invited workshops, and conferences organized through the Furman Academic Scholars Program.
To apply, please email Abby Williams at email@example.com:
- a 250-500 word outline of your scholarly interests and their relation to legal scholarship;
- a list of up to four Law School courses relevant to your interests;
- a copy of your current transcript (unofficial copies accepted);
- one letter of recommendation (to be sent separately);
- a statement of eligibility from your department’s Director of Graduate Study.
