Global Fellows Forum

The Global/Emile Noël 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/Emile Noël 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, together with Emile Noël Fellows from the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice, attend the Global/Emile Noël Fellows Forum, which features presentations of research by Global Fellows to an audience of other NYU School of Law students, 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 2023-2024 Academic Year.  For more information, please contact

Moderator(s) at the Fall 2023 Global/Emile Noël Fellows Forum will be Professor Kevin E. Davis, Beller Family Professor of Business Law and Faculty Director, Hauser Global Law School Program, and/or Professor J.H.H. Weiler, University Professor, Joseph Straus Professor of Law, European Union Jean Monnet Chaired Professor and Co-Director, Jean Monnet Center.
