John Marshall Visiting Research Fellows

Visiting post-doctoral fellows are a vital part of the center's work. Fellows pursue research within the context of the history of political, legal, economic and constitutional ideas. Fellows present their work, conduct faculty seminars, take part in conferences and teach upper-level courses for the Jepson School. The John Marshall Visiting Research Fellows are in residence to pursue their own advanced research on the theory and practice of statesmanship from the perspective of the history of political, legal or economic ideas.
