The Center invites a small number of Distinguished Fellows to be in residence for two to four weeks during the academic year.  Fellows are provided an office, secretarial assistance, travel and living expenses, and an honorarium.  While at Cardozo, they contribute in such ways as teaching a mini-course, giving a faculty workshop or public lecture, guest teaching another professor’s course, or providing an article to a Cardozo journal.  In addition, the Center occasionally sponsors a semester-long visit by a prominent constitutional scholar.
