Toggle secondary navigation

The application deadline has now passed for the 2019/20 McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellowship.  Please check back in early 2020 for the Call for the 2020/21 McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellowships.

The Fellowships were established in 2012 and are named in honour of Roy McMurtry, an Osgoode graduate ’58 and former Chancellor of York University. McMurtry, a former Chief Justice of Ontario and former Attorney General for Ontario, has long championed building bridges between the academy, Bar, and Bench. Fellowship holders will be senior lawyers who will be expected to play a vital role in creating and strengthening such bridges and enriching the intellectual and academic community at Osgoode.

McMurtry Fellows will spend a semester (or part of a semester) at Osgoode Hall Law School and may be directed toward a particular Osgoode clinical/intensive program or research/teaching cluster. They may be asked to guest lecture in a course or seminar setting or offer other advocacy or policy insights to students.  Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $25,000 for a full semester (this does not include additional stipends for teaching). McMurtry Fellowship holders may continue their professional activities while in residence at Osgoode with the exception of full-time practice.
