Future Law Teachers Fellowship Program

Thinking of a Career in Legal Education? Explore the LSU Law Future Law Teachers Fellowship Program. Applications will be accepted through January 10, 2014

Program:

The LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center welcomes applications for its Future Law Teachers Fellowship Program for the 2014-15 academic year. The Law Center is interested in fellows who wish to pursue careers in teaching law and producing legal scholarship.

The initial appointment of fellows will be for one year, but it is anticipated that fellows will remain for a second year. Fellows will have an opportunity to teach legal research, legal writing, and oral advocacy to our first-year students. Those who continue into the second year will also be given an opportunity to teach a seminar or course in an area of their substantive interest. Fellows will be expected to engage in scholarly research and writing, and will be expected to have an article accepted for publication in a law journal during their second year.

Our Commitment to LSU Law Future Law Teachers Fellows:

Faculty mentors and the law school faculty generally will actively support fellows with respect to their teaching, scholarship, and their efforts to obtain tenure-track positions in the legal academy. Fellows will also receive a salary of $60,000/year plus benefits, summer research support, a moving allowance, and an allowance for professional travel and travel to interview for a tenure-track position at the AALS Conference.

Qualifications:

Candidates should have outstanding academic credentials, be admitted to the practice of law, and have at least one year of significant post-graduate legal or judicial clerkship experience.

Applications will be accepted through January 10, 2014.
