I have been asked to post the following:
Yale-China Association Law Fellows Program
Call for Applications
The Yale-China Association is pleased to invite applications for its 2008-2009 Law Fellows Program. The program places young U.S.-trained attorneys at Chinese universities as visiting professors. Fellows spend one academic year in residence at a Chinese law school, teaching classes in areas of their own expertise and contributing to clinical education programs at the host institution. During the 2008-09 academic year, Yale-China will send two Law Fellows to China. One will be placed at the Hunan University School of Law in Changsha, Hunan, and will have the opportunity to help develop the school's new clinical legal education program. The other Fellow will be placed at a top law school in the Pearl River Delta region of China.
Anyone with a J.D. from an accredited U.S. law school and two years experience in legal practice is eligible to apply. Preference will be given to those candidates who speak Chinese, are familiar with China, and have teaching and/or clinical law experience. Fellows will receive intensive Chinese-language instruction during the summer 2008 in Beijing and continued Chinese-language instruction during their residency. Round-trip airfare to China, on-campus housing, health insurance, and a stipend are provided as part of the package.
Application Deadline: March 20, 2008.
