Berger-Howe Fellowship in Legal History at Harvard

Raoul Berger-Mark DeWolfe Howe Fellowship in Legal History, 2008-09
Harvard Law School
Deadline: February 1, 2008
Harvard Law 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 preferable, but 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 help to coordinate the Legal History Colloquium, which meets four 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).
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, relevant transcripts, a research proposal (no more than five pages), and at least two academic recommendations. Writing samples are welcome.
Please address your application to Professor Jed Shugerman, Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA, 02138. Applications by email are preferable. Please send them to Professor Shugerman's assistant Carol Igoe at cigoe@law.harvard.edu
