Visiting Professorships for Senior Lawyers
The Center for International Legal Studies, in cooperation with law schools in Eastern Europe and the former republics of the Soviet Union, is offering short-term visiting professorships for the spring and autumn semesters of 2008. Up to 70 appointments will be available to senior lawyers from Common Law countries.
A lawyer must have at least 25 years of significant practice experience in the area in which he or she proposes to lecture. The term may be from two to six weeks, with the length of time and the dates subject to negotiation between the appointee and the host university. While the subject areas are not limited, there is special interest in corporate and business law, intellectual property, litigation, arbitration and criminal procedure.
The purpose of the seminars is to introduce particular areas of Common Law legal systems to law students and junior faculty. The appointments are not remunerated and appointees are responsible for their own travel expenses. The host university will assist with lodging and there will be a one-week mandatory orientation seminar in Salzburg, Austria.
Interviews will be conducted at various locations in May 2007. Application forms may be obtained from:
