Legal Studies Graduate Programs
Graduate Fellows in Legal Studies
Graduate Fellows in Legal Studies (GFILs) receive preference for funding to Legal Studies conferences such as the Law and Society Association Conference, the Conference on Empirical Legal Studies, and Law and Humanities. GFILs receive preference for Teaching Assistantships in Legal Studies and may participate in reading and writing groups of interdisciplinary Legal Studies scholars around campus. Please click here for a copy of the GFILS application.
JD/PhD Joint Program
JD/PHD Program: Students pursuing the JD/PhD combined program spend the first two years in their various disciplinary departments on the Evanston campus. During that time, the Center for Legal Studies serves as a resource for teaching, advising, and programming. Legal Studies sponsors a graduate student/faculty reading group in which JD/PhD students and graduate students interested in the study of law and society may participate. The administration of the JD/PhD program is handled by Donald Rebstock.
We are able to present Graduate Fellows in Legal Studies programming thanks to the support of The Graduate School (TGS).
We will be hosting a Meet & Greet for prospective majors and minors on Wednesday, Feb. 26th from 3-5pm in Crowe 1-125
