Global Fellows

Emile Noël Fellows

The principal objective of the Emile Noël Fellowship program is scholarship and the advancement of research on the themes prioritized by the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice. These themes include the following overarching areas: European Integration, general issues of International (principally WTO) and Regional Economic Law and Justice and Comparative Constitutional Law. The expectation is that the residency of our Fellows at NYU School of Law will result in at least one paper that will be of sufficient quality to be published as a Jean Monnet Working Paper.

During the period of residence, we encourage our Fellows to participate fully in the life of the Law School and of NYU in general, not to mention the endless possibilities that New York City has to offer. The Fellows will be expected to play an active role in the activities of the Center including the Emile Noël Fellows Forum, one of the activities we consider to be at the heart of our center. The Forum takes place on a regular basis throughout the fall and spring semesters.

Categories of Fellowship

The Jean Monnet Center at NYU School of Law currently offers fellowship opportunities for scholars in the following categories:

  • Global and Senior Global Emile Noël Research Fellows are tenured or tenure-track academics with a demonstrable background of legal scholarship. More senior academics (for example, faculty members tenured for 10 years or more) at the discretion of the selection committee may be designated as Senior Global Emile Noël Research Fellows.
  • Global Emile Noël Fellows from Practice & Government are government officials, judges, officials from international organizations and lawyers in private practice who wish to take a semester or academic year away from their posts to engage in serious scholarship.
  • Post-Doctoral Global Emile Noël Fellows are postdoctoral scholars who have attained their doctoral degrees within the past four years and who have not yet secured a tenure-track academic appointment at an institution.

Applicants currently enrolled in a doctoral program are encouraged to apply as Visiting Doctoral Researchers, and, if admitted, may be affiliated with the Jean Monnet Center.

If you are interested in participating in the Global Fellows Program in another capacity, you may wish to view information regarding our Global and Senior Global Research Fellows, Global and Senior Global Fellows from Practice & Government or Post-Doctoral Global Fellows.
