Professorships for Senior Lawyers
Senior Lawyers’ Program, the CENTER
places experienced Common
practitioners in visiting professorships at institutions in East Europe
and the former republics of the Soviet Union. More than 300 senior
lawyers have taken up over 500 appointments in the first seven years of the
in cooperation with law faculties in Eastern Europe and the former
republics of the Soviet Union, will offer short-term appointments to as
many as 60 senior lawyers from Common Law countries during spring
and autumn each year. A “senior lawyer” has at least 15 years of significant
practice experience in the area in which he or she proposes to lecture.
The term of teaching may be from two to six weeks and the length of
appointment and dates of teaching are subject to negotiation between
the appointee and the host university. The subject areas are not
limited, but there is special interest in corporate and business law,
intellectual property, litigation, arbitration, and criminal procedure.
The purpose of the seminars will be to introduce particular areas of
Common Law legal systems to the law students and junior faculty of the
host university. These faculty appointments are not remunerated, and
the appointee is responsible for his or her travel. The host university
will assist with lodging. A one-week orientation seminar in Salzburg,
Austria, is mandatory prior to assumption of the appointment.
Interviews will be conducted in April, May, and June each year via video conference (skype).
