Visiting Assistant Professor Program

Each year the Boston University School of Law hires a small number of promising scholars for its Visiting Assistant Professor program. The program is meant to help those who are preparing to enter the market for tenure-track teaching positions at U.S. law schools; it provides a supportive scholarly environment, a chance to gain teaching experience, and a $50,000 stipend. The positions last for one year, during which time the VAP typically teaches a single course or seminar each semester. Participants also receive an office and secretarial support, a small budget for conferences and research expenses, and health and dental benefits.

Initial application materials consist of a CV, writing sample, statement of interest, and list of references (no letters of recommendation need be sent; we will contact references as necessary). Please submit them to:
