Fellowships are awarded to junior scholars who have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. within the past two years, or who are currently in the final stages of completing their dissertations, in order to encourage original and significant research on law, the legal profession, and legal institutions.

Fellowships are renewable for a second year, subject to satisfactory progress and participation.
