The Society sponsors fellowships to foster innovative scholarship, promote inclusive membership, and to cultivate new generations of legal historians. These fellowships support programs that create smaller and more focused venues where early career scholars may develop their skills, seek opportunities for career-building publications, interact with senior scholars, and meet peers from around the world with whom they will collaborate throughout their careers.
The Chicago-Kent College of Law / Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize is a scholarly writing competition that honors an outstanding article or book on a topic exploring the tension between civil liberties and national security in contemporary American society. The winner will receive a cash stipend of $10,000.
The purpose of the award from Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University is to encourage and recognize excellent legal scholarship related to gender and the law. The work should make a substantial contribution to legal literature and reflect original research and/or major developments in previously reported research. This paper competition is open to all full-time law professors with five (5) or fewer years of full-time law teaching experience.
The award honors an attorney who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to public service and social justice in his/her career. Nominees should be leaders in their fields who embody the tradition of public service that we seek to develop in all our students during their time at Stanford Law School.
