The MacCormick Fellowships (named in honour of the late Professor Sir Neil MacCormick, formerly Regius Professor of Public Law and the Law of Nature and Nations, University of Edinburgh), provide funding for academic research in the field of law more broadly, as well as the delivery of a lecture to showcase the recipient's research carried out while on location in Edinburgh.  

In the course of the last two weeks four fellows (pictured above: Professors Jonathan Simon, Mark Walters, Tom Wilson and Gordon Anderson) have delivered their official MacCormick lectures.
