Global Fellows Forum

The Global Fellows Forum is at the heart of the Global Fellows Program, and represents an integral component in the Hauser Global Law School's "Turn to Scholarship" initiated in 2003. The primary mission of the Global Fellows Program is the production of publishable scholarship. In meeting throughout the year, the forum serves as an important vehicle for facilitating the achievement of that mission.

All Global Fellows, that is Global and Senior Global Research Fellows, Global and Senior Global Fellows from Practice & Government and Post-Doctoral Global Fellows attend forums which serve as an important vehicle for facilitating the production of publishable scholarship. Our fora feature presentations of research by Global Fellows to an audience of other NYU School of Law fellows, faculty, and invited guests.  This provides an opportunity for fellows to gather, collaborate, share ideas and provide feedback in a supportive and intellectual environment.

Please see below for our Forum schedule for the 2014-15 Academic Year.  Research abstracts will be available about one week prior to each Forum date.

NOTE:  Moderator for all sessions will be Prof. Kevin Davis, Vice Dean for Global Affairs, Beller Family Professor of Business Law
