Visiting Professorships for Senior Lawyers
The Center for International Legal Studies offers short-term appointments in 2011 in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet republics for senior lawyers. Nearly 400 lawyers have taken up appointments in the last five years.
A “senior lawyer” has at least 20 years of significant practice experience. The term of teaching may be from two to six weeks or more, length of appointment and dates of teaching being subject to negotiation between appointee and host university.
Subject areas are not limited, but there is special interest in corporate and business law, intellectual property, litigation, arbitration, and criminal procedure. Faculty appointments are not remunerated: The appointee is responsible for 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 San Francisco (4 May 2010), Chicago (6 May 2010), and Boston 10 May 2010) for applications completed by 1 May 2010.
Assignments are made by a US 501(c)3 charity (CILS Benefactors Inc.), and properly receipted, relevant, and reasonable travel and lodging expenses are deductible for US tax subjects.
