The U.S. China Law Society is offering fellowships in support of research in the Chinese legal system. The full blurb is below:
The U.S. China Law Society is pleased to announce the launch of the Research Fellowship Program on Democratization, Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law in China. This year's program focuses on finding constructive measures to improve the People's Congress System and to build constitutionalism and the rule of law in China. The program plans to fund two fellows for the 2005-06 year. Each research fellow selected would be required to produce a research paper on an important aspect of the reform of the People's Congress System, democratization, development and reform of the constitutional review system, judicial reform and other rule of law issues. We aim to publish the papers in both the U.S. and China.
Please visit our website at www.uschinalawsociety.org to download Application.
The application deadline for the selection of the first fellow is July 30, 2005.
Two additional notes:
(1) As I read the application form, a total of $8,000 is available for both fellowships. No citizenship criterion is stated, but applicants must have an advanced degree (Ph.D., S.J.D., or J.D.) from, or be at the dissertation stage of a doctoral degree at, a U.S. university. Please read the application form to confirm these details.
