The Global Academic Fellows Programme was created to provide outstanding and aspiring legal academics with time and resources to transition into the global teaching market. Fellows will have access to an internationally leading faculty for mentorship and affiliation with related research centers alongside support for attending academic conferences to present their work. Other opportunities will include the option of co-teaching courses and organizing funded academic conferences.
