The Brooks Institute is offering an academic-year fellowship to law students who are interested in pursuing a career in law teaching and who seek mentorship and an opportunity to develop scholarly agendas in the field of animal law. The goal of the fellowship is to increase the number of well-qualified persons who intend to pursue a faculty appointment in a law school and intend to make animal law a significant component of their teaching and research.
Fellowships may be held during the second or third year of law school, and students who receive the fellowship in their second year may apply for a renewal of the fellowship for their third year. Fellows will benefit from receiving mentoring and advising from Brooks Institute affiliated faculty, attending academic workshops sponsored by the Brooks Institute, and undertaking research to begin to develop a scholarly agenda and to work towards a publishable paper in the area of animal law and policy.
