In addition, we encourage applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds and perspectives who will enrich and improve the student experience and the Law School’s culture. The Dickerson Fellow will teach one or more courses per year and will be expected to publish high-quality scholarship and contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School.
A J.D. is required.
