Posted by Alan Childress
Prof. G. Randall Lee at Widener, on behalf of the AALS Section on Professional Responsibility, forwarded to members this interesting announcement, and has said we could reprint it here at LPB:
Stanford Law School’s Center on the Legal Profession invites Fellowship applications for the forthcoming academic year (2009-2010).
The Center on the Legal Profession, directed by Professor Deborah L. Rhode, supports research, teaching, programs, and public policy initiatives on crucial issues facing the bar. The Center focuses on issues of professional responsibility and the structure of legal practice. Central concerns include how to enhance access to justice, sustain ethical values, improve bar regulatory structures, and effectively respond to the changing dynamics of legal workplaces. Upcoming Center events include The Roadmap to Justice Project, a national effort to draw leaders in the field to develop an agenda for expanding access to legal services for low- and middle-income individuals, and the International Legal Ethics Conference in 2010.
The Center on the Legal
Profession Fellowship is a full-time, one-year residential fellowship
beginning in June 2009. It is designed to offer scholars interested in topics of
professional responsibility and the structure of legal practice an opportunity to
conduct research and participate in law school events. Fellows will be provided
with office space, a stipend of $50,000, and a generous benefits package.
All inquires about the program and applications should be submitted by December 1, 2008 to:
