Princeton LAPA Fellowship Deadline

by Peggy McGuinness

For interested readers, our friend and colleague Bobby Ahdieh sends along the following information about fellowships with the Princeton University Program in Law and Public Affairs.  The fellows program has typically hosted at least one or two public international law scholars (several of them are OJ alums!).  Past fellows rave about the experience — the time to focus on a longer project, the interdisciplinary approach to public law issues, and the opportunity to engage an audience beyond the legal community.  The deadline for applications for 2009-2010 academic year is November 3.  Here’s an excerpt from the website:

Princeton University’s Program in Law and Public Affairs (“LAPA”) explores the role of law in constituting politics, society, the economy and culture. LAPA participants are engaged in the study of law both in the present and over time, not only in the US, but also in countries around the world and across national borders. Each year, LAPA brings to Princeton a select group of residential fellows and occasional visitors drawn from the academy, legal practice, government, and policy-making institutions. They join a collection of professors on Princeton’s permanent faculty who draw upon diverse methodologies to investigate legal phenomena. By combining the multidisciplinary expertise of Princeton’s faculty with knowledge and perspectives provided by leading academic and practical experts on the law, the Program in Law and Public Affairs has created an exciting new forum for teaching and research about the legal technologies and institutions needed to address the complex problems of the new century.

  1. Surely that kind of assemblage can kindle new approaches and thought. I spoke to George Kennan, over 16 years ago, about such a potential for enhancing a domain’s explanatory power. In the international relations, I view it as a necessity. 

  2. You’re way ahead of me, Peggy. Speaking as a current visitor here at LAPA, boy do I second the sentiment. It’s a spectacular place to spend some scholarly time.
