Undergraduate Student Fellows

The Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy offers the opportunity to participate in Centre life to a select group of undergraduate student fellows each year. Our student fellows are chosen on the basis of variety of considerations, including academic accomplishment, a strong interest in the theoretical underpinnings of the law, and the possibility of a future in legal academia.
