The Appel Fellowship on the Regulation of the Multinational Enterprise

The Appel Fellowship was established in 2001 by Mark Appel. It awards an annual prize—up to full tuition for one academic year—to an LL.M. or J.S.D. degree candidate who intends to focus their research on regulatory or policy issues emerging from the transboundary operations of multinational or transnational enterprises. Priority is given to students from emerging economies. 

The fellow is expected to participate in a relevant research seminar culminating in a workshop on the subject that brings prominent scholars and practitioners to the Law School. Research topics may include issues relating to corporate governance, labor issues, environmental concerns, or human rights.

To apply:

  • Submit a complete application for admission to the LL.M. Program.
  • Submit a separate two-page essay describing your background, interest in this area of law, and the research you would undertake at the Law School if you were awarded the fellowship. 
  • Label the first page of your essay “Application for Appel Fellowship” and upload it to the appropriate section of the LSAC online application. 

Only successful applicants will be notified.
