2020-2021 LAPA Fellows

The Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) at Princeton invites outstanding faculty members of any discipline, independent scholars, lawyers, and judges to apply for residential fellowships for 2020-2021. LAPA Fellows devote the major portion of their time to their own research and writing on law-related subjects of empirical, interpretive, doctrinal and/or normative significance. In addition, LAPA Fellows are expected to be in residence for ten months  and participate in LAPA programs, including a biweekly seminar, a weekly luncheon discussion group, as well as some public events and conferences. The program does not support, as a primary activity, off-site fieldwork or work in remote archives, development of course materials, work in legal practice, or residence elsewhere. 

Fellows may apply to teach one course in Princeton's graduate or undergraduate programs, subject to the needs of the University, sufficient enrollment, approval of the Dean of the Faculty, and the cooperation of the sponsoring academic department. As a general rule, Fellows receive a research salary of one-half their ten month salary at their home institution, up to a maximum set each year before selection is made. This means that some support will be lower than one half of an actual salary for those at the high end of a salary spectrum. LAPA will pay at least a minimum research salary in an amount determined each year. If approved to teach, a Fellow will hold a secondary teaching rank that will be based on the Fellow's home institution rank and salary rate. Teaching opportunities are not guaranteed. Fellows may also apply for funding from additional sources so long as receipt of the funds does not interfere with the LAPA requirements. 

All applicants must have received a doctorate, juris doctor, or an equivalent professional degree at the time of submission of the fellowship application. The selection committee looks particularly closely at the proposal outlining the research and writing to be conducted while in residence at Princeton. Successful LAPA applicants should demonstrate substantial expertise in law-related matters. The committee is composed of Princeton faculty members representing LAPA's three funding sources, WWS, UCHV, and the University. They evaluate applicants on the basis of the quality of their achievements in their field of specialization and their ability to benefit from the activities of the program; the quality and significance of their proposed projects; the future contributions they are likely to make to legal scholarship and practice; and their ability to contribute to intellectual life in legal studies at Princeton. In selecting fellows, the committee may consider how each individual will contribute to the fellows' cohort as well as to the program.
