The HLS Animal Law & Policy Program Fellowships provide opportunities for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on Animal Law & Policy projects that further the Program’s mission.
The Animal Law & Policy Program offers several types of fellowships:
• Visiting Fellowships
• Clinical Fellowships
• Academic Fellowships
Fellows devote their time to scholarly activities in furtherance of their research agendas and to contributing to the work of the Animal Law & Policy Program. Fellows will be expected to participate in Program activities, contribute to the intellectual life of the Program, and are encouraged to organize one or more academic events related to their fellowship project. Fellows also have the opportunity to mentor students, assist with the placement and supervision of students in experiential learning opportunities, and contribute to the Animal Law & Policy Program’s broader presence.
Applicants must have an advanced degree in (J.D., LL.M., S.J.D., Ph.D.). We specifically look for recent graduates, junior academics, and mid-career practitioners who are committed to pursuing publishable research that will make a significant contribution in the area of animal law and policy. Applicants are evaluated by the quality and significance of their research proposals and by their record of academic and professional achievement.
