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 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. 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.
Interested individuals should submit an application online consisting of the following: (1) a curriculum vitae (CV); (2) a brief statement of interest (one to two pages) and in particular what proposed activities would be undertaken while in residency at Osgoode; (3) preference as to timing.
Enquires should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
