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 Program's "Turn to Scholarship" initiated in 2003. The primary mission of the Global Fellows Program is the production of publishable scholarship, and the Global Fellows 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 the Global Fellows Forum, which features 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 Global Fellows to gather, collaborate, share ideas and provide feedback in a supportive and intellectual environment.

Please see below for our Forum schedule for the 2016-17 Academic Year. Research drafts will be available about one week prior to each Forum date.  

NOTE: Moderators for all sessions will be Prof. Gráinne de Búrca, Florence Ellinwood Professor of Law, Faculty Director, Hauser Global Law School and Co-Director, Jean Monnet Center, and Prof. J.H.H. Weiler, University Professor, Joseph Straus Professor of Law, European Union Jean Monnet Chaired Professor and Co-Director, Jean Monnet Center.
