Individuals who become fellows at the Program are usually scholars with a substantial background in human rights, or experienced activists.
On occasion, they have included young committed workers in the field with the capacity and interest to develop as teachers or activists.
A number of fellows have also come from the judiciary and other branches of government.
Typically, fellows come from outside the United States.
They spend from one semester to a full academic year (preference for candidates who can commit to a full academic year) in residence at the Law School and devote the majority of their time to research and writing on a specific human rights topic.
Applications for the year's Visiting Fellowship Program are due on December 14.
