I hope that many legal historians will apply for this new fellowship
, from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law:
Berkeley Law is pleased to announce it seeks applications for the
Darling Fellowship, made possible through a generous grant by the Hugh
& Hazel Darling Foundation. Fellows must be committed to producing
publishable work in public law and policy, which will help form the
foundation for their entry into the job market for law teaching
The Darling Fellowship is a one-year, residential, full-time position
expected to run from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. Fellows are
required to devote their attention to research and writing, and to
contribute to the intellectual life of the law school. Fellows will
assist faculty in running the public law and policy workshop and may
also be invited to guest lecture or teach in other law school classes.
They may also help plan a small number of events related to law and
public policy and advise interested students.
Berkeley Law will provide office space, an annual salary of $50,000
and benefits, and access to the UC Berkeley library system and resources
for research. The University offers excellent health and retirement
benefits which can be viewed online at http://atyourservice.ucop.edu/.
Applicants will be evaluated solely on the basis of their record of
academic and scholarly achievement. Of particular importance will be
the applicant’s potential for significant contributions to research in
public law and policy.

Darling Foundation Fellowship must hold a J.D. or equivalent by
application submission date.
