Neues von der IALL: Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Scholars Program

The Law Library of Congress invites applications for the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Scholars Program. The purpose of this program is to fund a scholar whose research will draw upon the Law Library’s world-class collections, target new acquisitions, and leverage the Law Library’s staff expertise. The focus of the program is to create new research at the intersection of demography, technology, and criminal justice. This research will generate benchmarks, metrics, best practices, and possible solutions to some of the emerging legal issues that fall at the intersection of these fields. The program will encourage a multidisciplinary and multinational approach for the greatest impact.
