The Institute for Advanced Legal Studies has opened its call for 2015-16 fellowship applications. Among the Institute’s research areas of interest are: ‘Access to Legal Information’ and ‘Information/Data Law and Policy’. Fellows working in those areas will be invited to join our new Centre for Law and Information Policy, launching in spring 2015.

The Institute’s Visiting Fellowships are non-stipendiary but the holders enjoy a variety of benefits in kind which facilitate their work, along with close association with the relevant research and training activity being pursued at the Institute.
