Michigan Law Announces Faculty Fellow Program

Michigan Law will launch a program of two-year fellowships for highly promising scholars with outstanding academic records, giving them an opportunity to develop their scholarship and teaching skills in preparation for the academic job market. 

The Michigan Faculty Fellow program is special among such increasingly prominent post-doc or visiting assistant professor programs around the country in that it will focus on the professional development of each Fellow.

“The Law School has long been one of the nation’s leaders in educating aspiring legal scholars,” says Daniel Halberstam, associate dean for faculty and research and the Eric Stein Collegiate Professor of Law. 

“The program will further strengthen our reputation in this area, help bring promising aspiring academics to the Law School, and place Michigan-inspired scholars in law schools in the United States and around the world.”

The program will provide mentoring in both scholarship and teaching, while encouraging the Fellows to take full part in the intellectual life of the Law School. 

The Michigan Faculty Fellow program will take applications this fall for fellowships to begin in September 2019.
