Berger Visiting Fellowship in Legal History at Harvard

Raoul Berger Visiting Fellowship in Legal History, 2007-08
Deadline: February 1, 2007

The Harvard Law School announces a fellowship in legal history funded by a generous donation from the estate of the late Raoul Berger.

The School is seeking fellows who have a JD degree, who have completed the required coursework for their doctorate degree, or who have recently been awarded the doctorate degree. A JD is not required. We will also consider applicants who are beginning a teaching career in either law or history. The purpose of the fellowship is to enable the fellow to complete a major piece of writing in the field of legal history, broadly defined. There are no limitations as to geographical area or time period. Fellows are expected to spend the majority of their time on their own research. They are also asked to help to coordinate the Legal History Colloquium, which meets four or five times each semester. The Berger Fellow is invited to present their own work. Fellows will be required to be in residence at the Harvard Law School during the academic year (September through May).

Applicants for the fellowship for 2007-08 should address a letter to the co-chairs of the Berger Fellowship Program, Professors Bruce Mann and Jed Shugerman, at the Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA 02318.
