Visiting Fellowships 2022–2023

Applications due January 15, 2022

Harvard Law School’s Program on Law and Society in the Muslim World invites applications for Visiting Fellowships for the 2022–2023 academic year. This fellowship provides opportunities for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on law and society in Muslim majority and minority contexts. 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 advanced degrees (e.g., JD, LLM, SJD, PhD or other comparable degree) and experienced practicing lawyers who aim to draw upon their legal experience in their Fellowship project. Fellows may spend from one month up to one academic year (excluding June-August) 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. 

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 PLSMW fellowship may be combined with another fellowship or award.

The deadline to submit all application materials (including letters of recommendation) is January 15, 2022 to be considered for a fellowship term during the 2022–2023 academic year. Click here for additional information and how to apply.
