OPPORTUNITY: Fulbright Visiting Chair in Private and Comparative Law

The Faculty of Law at McGill University, in conjunction with the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law, is delighted to announce that applications are being received for a Fulbright Visiting Chair in Private and Comparative Law for 2014-15. This is an opportunity for an established US scholar to spend one semester at McGill during that academic year. It carries a stipend of $25,000 and so provides a generous opportunity for someone who is benefiting from sabbatical or other paid leave. The deadline to apply is 1 August 2013.

A description of the Chair is at:
