O'Brien Fellowships 2011 – Call for applications
The O'Brien Fellowship was established in 2005 through a very generous gift from David O'Brien for outstanding Masters or Doctoral students studying in the area of human rights and legal pluralism in the Faculty of Law, McGill University.
O'Brien Fellows become members of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism, a focal point for innovative legal and interdisciplinary research, dialogue, and outreach on human rights and legal pluralism.
The O'Brien Fellowships are valued at $25,000 per annum. Fellows pay fees at the level of Quebec residents and receive one travel grant per year to present their research results at an academic conference.
Successful applicants will have an outstanding academic record and a strong research proposal in the field of human rights and legal pluralism.
Deadline to apply: January 15, 2012.
Further information and application forms are available on the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism website, under O’Brien Fellowships for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism.
Applicants who are not currently enrolled in the LL.M. or D.C.L. program at McGill must also file an application for admission to one of these programs by January 15, 2012.
