GW Announces Legal History Research Grant

[We have the following announcement from GW Law.]

GW Law is pleased to invite applications for the Richard & Diane Cummins Legal History Research Grant for 2012.

The Cummins Grant provides a stipend of $10,000 to support short-term historical research using the Special Collections Department at GW's Jacob Burns Law Library, which is noted for its continental historical legal collections, especially its French collection, with strengths in Roman and canon law, church-state relations, international law, and many incunabula holdings.

The grant is awarded to one doctoral, LL.M., or S.J.D. candidate, postdoctoral researcher, faculty member, or independent scholar. The successful candidate may come from a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to, law, history, religion, philosophy, or bibliography.
