The Critical Race Studies (CRS) program at UCLA School of Law is now accepting applications for the Critical Race Studies Fellowship. The CRS Fellowship is designed to support the research and professional development of a candidate interested in pursuing a career in law teaching. CRS at UCLA is the only program of its kind in the country and is the premier institutional setting for the study of the intersection between race and the law. Anchored by renowned scholars whose research helped found and continues to advance Critical Race Theory in legal scholarship and related disciplines, CRS supports a unique intellectual community for faculty and students, including formal JD and LLM specializations in Critical Race Studies.
A CRS Fellowship candidate should possess (or expect to possess by June 30, 2017) a JD, LLM, or equivalent legal training; a strong academic record; excellent analytical and writing skills; and demonstrated interest and background in Critical Race Theory. For the 2017-18 Fellowship, we now welcome applications from graduates of any law school, though UCLA CRS graduates remain strongly encouraged to apply.
