The Lauterpacht Centre for International Law is pleased to invite applications for the 2018-2019 Brandon Research Fellowship, which continues to be funded by generous gifts made by Mr Michael Brandon (1923-2012) in 2009 and by Mr Christopher Brandon in 2013.
The Brandon Research Fellowship is intended to cover a stay of at least 11 - 13 weeks at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law and has a maximum value of GBP 4,500; any additional travel or other expenses will be the responsibility of the selected Fellow. Awards will be made pro rata if a visit of less than 11 weeks is agreed to. The Fellowship is tenable between October 2018 and September 2019. Two awards may be made if the strength of the field warrants it.
LCIL provides a centre for research in Cambridge for legal practitioners and academics from around the world. The Brandon Research Fellow will be welcomed as part of the community of visiting academics at LCIL and will undertake their own research project on some aspect of public or private international law or international arbitration. Whilst the expectation is that candidates will pursue their own research project, should the successful applicant's research project be within an area connected to an LCIL Fellows' project or research activities, candidates may be invited to contribute or collaborate in those projects. Information on requirements and eligibility can be found in the guidance notes below.
