The Centre of Law and Society Research Visitor Fellowship Call

We invite early career scholars and emerging researchers to apply for the CLS research virtual visitor fellowships in the academic year 2020/21.

Associated with the internationally prestigious Journal of Law and Society, The Centre of Law and Society offers a stimulating academic environment for socio-legal scholars to conduct research of the highest quality. Applications are welcome from UK and overseas scholars in the fields of sociology of law and socio-legal studies.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the fellowships will be organised online and successful candidates will be able to use Cardiff University's online resources and join the Centre's online activities and present their work through its virtual collaborative network. Fellowships will be awarded for the period of up to one semester during the academic year 2020/21.

Applicants are expected to make initial contact with their preferred academic sponsor from the School of Law and Politics who will be acting as their point of contact through their visit. As part of their application, they will submit a brief description (1000 words) of their research project.

Successful candidates are expected to participate in the Centre's online Work in Progress sessions and contribute at least one research seminar during their stay and submit a short report at the end of their visit.
