Ethan Michelson at Indiana U (sociology, law--he has done some great work on the legal profession in China) passed along this announcement for law and society fellowships:
The Indiana University Center for Law, Society, and Culture will appoint up to three post-doctoral fellows per year beginning with the 2012-13 academic year. We invite applications from scholars of law, the humanities, or social sciences working in the field of sociolegal studies. Pre-tenure scholars, recently awarded PhDs, and those with equivalent professional degrees are encouraged to apply. Advanced graduate students may also apply, but evidence of completion of the doctoral degree or its equivalent is required before beginning the fellowship.
Fellows will devote a full academic year to research and writing in furtherance of a major scholarly project, and will receive a stipend plus a research allowance, health insurance, other benefits, and workspace at Indiana Law. They will conduct research at Indiana University and participate in the activities of the Center, which include an annual symposium, a colloquia series, and regular workshops and lectures. (The term of the appointment will be 10 to 12 months, beginning August 1, 2012. The amount of the stipend will be the same regardless of the duration of the appointment.)

These are the well-regarded "Jerome Hall Postdoctoral Fellowships" at Indiana University-Bloomington. That school is doing amazing work in law & society generally and studying the fundamental transitions in the legal profession. [Alan Childress]
