CICL Global Law Fellows

Overview

In 2011, Dean Michael A. Simons approved the Global Law Fellows program for foreign undergraduate, masters and doctoral students, allowing them to spend a semester at St. John’s School of Law as visiting researchers. Global Law Fellows enroll in a one-credit hour colloquium, providing them an academic peer group, a vehicle for providing U.S. and English language legal research skills development and regular faculty oversight of this diverse group of visiting researchers.

Candidates for Global Law Fellowships must express a need to do research in the United States, in New York City or with English language source materials. In addition, Global Law Fellows must have sufficient English language skills to benefit from a semester of research at St. John’s and must be nominated for a Fellowship by the chair or a senior member of their academic department or by a St. John’s faculty member.
