Tulane Law School invites applicants for the Forrester Fellowship. Forrester Fellows are promising legal academics who teach in the first-year legal writing program. Fellows teach legal writing to two sections of 25 to 30 first-year law students in a program coordinated by the Director of Legal Writing.
Fellows are invited to participate in all aspects of the intellectual life of the law school. Fellows are encouraged to present their work at faculty workshops and “brown bags,” and members of the full-time faculty serve as mentors to fellows. Fellows receive a stipend to support travel and research.
Fellows are appointed to a one-year term with the possibility of a single one-year renewal. Fellows are expected to enter the law-teaching market. The fellowship will not lead to a long-term teaching position at Tulane Law School.
The successful candidate has an outstanding record of academic and professional achievement. Applicants must have a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school, outstanding academic credentials, and at least three years of law-related practice and/or clerkship experience.
Candidates will be evaluated based upon the following nonexclusive criteria:
Legal practice and/or clerkship experience
Applications are due April 2, 2018.
