Impressive response to Sutherland Fellows programme

Following the launch of the Sutherland Fellows programme earlier this year, the School has seen an impressive and dynamic number of applicants apply. The initiative launched by the Dean, Professor Imelda Maher, welcomes a small number of visiting faculty and doctoral students each year as Sutherland Fellows.

The Sutherland Fellows contribute to the intellectual life of the School through joining one of our research groups and centres; engaging with faculty on their work; developing international collaborations and networks; by presenting their work in staff seminars; and engaging especially with graduate students. Doctoral fellows are expected to advance their research project, to join one of our research groups and centres, and to engage with the doctoral student community in the School. 

It is anticipated that visits will usually be for one semester and ideally the School prefers Sutherland Fellows to be with us during term time. Start and end dates must be agreed in advance between each individual Fellow and UCD Sutherland School of Law. There are four calls for applications deadlines of 1st March1st June1st September and 1st January.
