2 Year Fixed Term Position
(two-year position with the possibility of a third year by mutual consent and approval)
The Teaching Fellow for the Stanford Law School LLM Program in Environmental Law & Policy will work with LLM student candidates in the program. The fellow will assume significant academic, advising and administrative responsibilities. He or she will be responsible for teaching two quarters of a colloquium addressing current issues and scholarship in the environment, energy, other natural resources, and related fields. The fellow will organize and facilitate workshops, outside speakers, and academic and social events; be responsible for day-to-day administrative management of the LLM program; advise and counsel LLM candidates on academic and personal issues; respond to inquiries from prospective LLM applicants; and interact with our faculty in support of the LLM program goals and needs. The fellow will work under the supervision of Professor Barton Thompson and the Associate Dean for Global Programs. The fellow will also fully participate in the admissions process, working under the guidance of the Associate Dean for Admissions, to admit the new class. Although this is a full-time position, the fellow will have a reasonable amount of time to conduct his or her own research and will have access to environmental and other faculty at the law school for feedback on their research.
Candidates for this position are expected to have strong academic records and references. Professional experience in the area is also valuable, but not required. This position is intended primarily for people who expect to pursue an academic career in a field that is reasonably related to environmental or resource law, although others may apply. Candidates must hold a JD, JSD, PhD, or LLM from a U.S. law school. Applicants are expected to commit to this position for a two-year term. A third year is possible by mutual consent and approval. This is not a long-term teaching opportunity.
Those interested should apply by letter, summarizing their complete educational qualifications and experience, as well as any other information that might help us in making selections. Each applicant should also send us an official law school transcript, a resume, copies of any publications, and three letters of recommendation (at least two from law professors) commenting on the applicant’s suitability for the position in terms of teaching ability, analytic capability, interpersonal skills, and writing ability.
