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. 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.

The application deadline for the 2022-2023 Appel Fellowship is December 18, 2022 (the same deadline as the application for the LL.M. Program).

To apply, submit a completed application for admission to the LL.M. program through LSAC, including your résumé/CV. The application must include a "Financial Aid Essay" (maximum 500 words) addressing the reason(s) in support of your candidacy for the Appel Fellowship.

Only successful applicants will be notified.
