The Schulich Fellowship 2022-2023
Call for Expressions of Interest
Schulich Fellows participate actively in the intellectual life of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University in a way that supports their development as scholars and teachers. Schulich Fellows are expected to teach a course in the first year J.D. program and to participate actively in the scholarly activities of the faculty, including by participating in the faculty seminar series. It is anticipated that they will be working toward publishing parts of their graduate work and conducting new research. It is not anticipated that Fellows will carry administrative responsibilities. Fellows are expected to be in residence at the School from the beginning of August 2022 through the end of May 2023.
Applications will be adjudicated on a combination of academic record (including research productivity) and the fit between the applicant’s research and teaching interests and the clusters of research and teaching at the School and the School’s strategic priorities. Applicants are generally expected to be doctoral students in at least their third year of their doctoral studies.
The Schulich Fellow will receive a stipend of up to $50,000.
About the Schulich School of Law
The Schulich School of Law plays an extraordinary role in the fabric of Canadian legal education. We are a national law school, with our students coming from and returning to every region. We graduate leaders. Our alumni hold every form of government office, teach in Canadian law schools, innovate in the provision of private and public sector legal services and in business, advance policy in the executive branch of government, render decisions on courts across the country, and offer service to non-governmental bodies and non-profit and community organizations. We have always been known for and proud of our commitment to unselfish public service, in the Weldon tradition.
We embrace the interdisciplinary opportunity of working in a university, we value the creation and dissemination of new knowledge, and we are firmly committed to students and to teaching and learning excellence. We are conscious of the difference we make to law reform, adjudication, legal service, and community engagement at home and around the world. We value the contributions of the founding communities in this province, the Mi’kmaq Nation, Acadians, African Nova Scotians, and British, and we open our doors to the world.
