The UCLA School of Law is pleased to offer a fellowship designed to attract UCLA law school alumni who are interested in becoming a law professor. The paid, two-year fellowship will begin July 1, 2020 and end June 30, 2022. It is potentially renewable for one additional year based on the fellow's scholarly progress.
Program The Greenberg Fellow will be expected to teach a total of three courses over the term of the fellowship and produce at least one legal academic article of publishable quality during each of the two years in residence. The fellow will receive substantial faculty mentorship with their scholarly writing and teaching, and she or he will participate in the intellectual life of the law school, including faculty workshops. The fellow will have an office at the law school. The position is a non-tenure track, full-time, limited-term appointment. The salary is approximately $76,000 per year, with a competitive benefits package, and some research and travel support.
Qualifications A JD or LLM degree from the UCLA School of Law is required. (Please note that the fellowship used to be open only the alumni of the UCLA Law Review, but Law Review membership is no longer a requirement.) Applicants should have a strong law school record and have demonstrated an outstanding aptitude for producing independent legal scholarship. Fellows will be chosen on the basis of their demonstrated commitment to a scholarly career, the quality of their research proposal, and an assessment of their potential for success on the legal academic market. UCLA School of Law candidates committed to the highest standards of scholarship and professional activities and to a campus climate that supports equality and diversity.
About the Donor Support for the Fellowship comes from Bernard Greenberg '53, JD 58 and Lenore Greenberg '57. The Greenbergs established this program in recognition of the importance to UCLA Law of increasing the number of alumni who pursue academic careers. Bernard is currently a member of the UCLA Law Board of Advisors, served as editor-in-chief of Volume 5 of the UCLA Law Review, was a teaching fellow at Harvard, and served on the UCLA Law faculty as an adjunct professor.
