The Quebec Research Centre of Private and Comparative Law invite applications for postgraduate scholarship opportunities
FQRSC Scholarship in Transsystemic Legal Studies
With significant financial support from the Fonds québécois de la recherché sur la société et la culture, the QRCPCL has launched a wide-ranging research program on transsystemic legal education and how it affects our understanding of the discipline of law. Funds are available for one graduate student, either at the doctoral or the master’s level (up to $15,000), to participate in this program. The selected student will be one whose proposed research relates to aspects of transsystemic legal education or legal epistemology. This could include (but is not limited to): comparative law as applied in legal education; methodology or philosophy of comparative law methodology or philosophy of legal education; interdisciplinary perspectives on comparative law or legal education. The student will participate in the activities of the research program, including the organization of conferences on transsystemic legal education, the publication of conference proceedings, and the publication of scholarship on transsystemic legal thought.
The successful student may be granted a renewable or a non-renewable scholarship. This scholarship is now offered for 2010-11. Priority will be given to students applying to postgraduate programs at McGill University’s Faculty of Law.
