Visiting Chairs in Legal Studies
US$25,000 for one semester (4 months)
Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Private & Comparative Law at McGill University The Faculty of Law, McGill University, true to its mission of teaching private law in a transsystemic , pluralistic setting, seeks applications from leading scholars in private law. The Faculty is seeking to enhance and stimulate its inquiries into the social dimensions of private law and the concepts underlying private law. In this spirit, the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law has recently begun to focus its research activities on a number of neglected areas of property and trusts. Potential avenues of inquiry might look at the social obligations of property, here framed widely a s both pertaining to traditional resources and to intellectual resources; the manner in which private resources help to fulfill human capacities o r human development; or the way in which such progressive approaches provide critical additions, correctives o r responses to doctrinal, formal or economic understandings of property institutions. Such an approach might also provoke more detailed studies of trusts, or investigations into the larger generic concepts relevant to private law, such as ethics, equity ( epikeia or aequitas), loyalty, fiduciary obligations or duty. As well, more precise generic concepts present in some private law systems, such as good faith or abus de droit might be valuable objects of study. The scholar would possess a distinguished record of achievement in these areas. Background in other areas of private law would also be an asset. A rich background in the historical development of property and trust institutions in the United States and around the world would be an additional asset. Specializations: Private Law, Property, Social Obligations, Intellectual Property, Trusts, Equity.

McGill University For the 2014-2015 year, the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada is seeking to appoint a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair whose work deals with Aboriginal/Indigenous Life and Culture in the North American Context. The research of the individual selected may be concerned with any aspect of Aboriginal/Indigenous life and culture, but we are particularly interested in receiving a scholar whose work deals with the North American context in an integrated sense. We are particularly interested, as well, in scholars whose work offers an interesting integration of humanistic and social science perspectives. While we expect that that the holder of the Chair will be a specialist in one discipline, we are seeking someone whose work integrates a variety of perspectives and addresses a range of experiences. Applicants are expected to hold a doctoral degree in a relevant discipline and have a record of publication and research in an area relevant to the theme of the Chair. Specializations: Canada, North America, Aboriginal, Indigenous, Culture.
