Raoul Berger-Mark DeWolfe Howe Legal History Fellowship

[We have the following announcement.  DRE.]

Raoul Berger-Mark DeWolfe Howe Legal History Fellowship

Harvard Law School invites applications for the Berger-Howe Fellowship for the academic year 2020-2021. Eligible applicants include those who have a first law degree, who have completed the required coursework for a doctorate, or who have recently been awarded a doctoral degree. A J.D. is preferred, but not required. 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 also help coordinate the Harvard Law School Legal History Colloquium, which meets four or five times each semester. Fellows are invited to present their own work at the colloquium. Fellows will be required to be in residence at the law school during the academic year (September through May).

Applicants for the fellowship for 2020-2021 should submit their applications and supporting materials electronically to Professor Bruce H. Mann.  Current and former Berger-Howe Fellows here.
