University of Illinois College of Law Launches Illinois Academic Fellowship Program for Aspiring Law Professors
Posted by Christine Hurt

Illinois For many years, Illinois has hosted a more-or-less informal VAP program for its own graduates, one of the more famous (infamous?) being my colleague Bob Lawless.  Starting now, under the leadership of our new Associate Dean for Faculty & Research, Larry Solum, Illinois is expanding this program to all aspiring legal scholars who are interested in joining the academy.  The Illinois Academic Fellowship Program invites applicants for one- or two-year posts:

The Illinois Academic Fellowship Program prepares future legal academics, who spend one or two years in residence at the College of Law devoted to scholarly research and writing (under the close mentorship of Illinois faculty), teaching one course per semester, and fully participating in the College's famously rich intellectual environment. By treating Illinois Academic Fellows as the virtual equivalent of tenure-track faculty (although with a light teaching load and no administrative responsibilities) and providing Fellows the support and counseling necessary to the development of a serious scholarly portfolio, we expect Fellows to be competitive for tenure-track positions at leading law schools.
