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 2019–2020 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
