Teaching Fellow for Stanford Law School LLM Program in Law, Science and Technology
The Teaching Fellow for the Stanford Law School LLM Program in Law, Science and Technology will work with candidates in the LLM specialization in Law, Science and Technology. The fellow will assume significant academic, advising and administrative responsibilities. He or she will be responsible for organizing and teaching two quarters of a colloquium addressing current issues and scholarship in intellectual property, cyberlaw, bioethics, and related fields. The fellow will also organize and facilitate informal 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 with the Executive Director of International Graduate Programs, and under the supervision of the Faculty Director of the Law, Science and Technology program. 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 should have a reasonable amount of time to conduct his or her own research, and will have ready access to affiliated faculty for that purpose.
Candidates for this position are expected to have strong academic records and references. Professional experience in the area is also valuable. This position is intended primarily for people who expect to pursue an academic career in a field that is reasonably related to the specialization and who hold a JD, JSD or LLM from a U.S. law school. Applicants are expected to commit to this position in one year increments, starting in August 2014, with a two-year commitment preferred.
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.
