PIJIP’s project on the Right to Research in International Copyright invites applications for the Fellowship in International Copyright. The Fellowship is intended for students pursuing a career in academics, research, or public interest legal practice in the field of international copyright law. Fellows receive a full-tuition scholarship for an LL.M. in Intellectual Property and Technology and a paid research position with the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property.
Fellows will participate in a 16 month program of study and research, beginning in August 2021. Fellows are required to take the courses listed below. They will participate in a program-long supervised research project culminating in the presentation of a major thesis in their final semester. Fellows will also work as a PIJIP Research Assistant supervising J.D. students in collaborative research projects, performing and guiding research and analysis, and assisting in the coordination and administration of academic meetings, conferences and other activities.
Completion of this LL.M. is primarily intended for those intending to enter an academic or other research-focused career and does not qualify participants to sit for the New York or another U.S. bar examination to practice law in the United States.
The course work for Fellows consists of the following courses, subject to alteration with approval of the LL.M. Director. Foreign students with an F-1 Visa must maintain 8 credits per semester and may pursue a year of optional practical training (OPT) at the end of the program.
