Hiring promising scholars planning teaching careers

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 US 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 administrative support, a small budget for conferences and research expenses, and health and dental benefits.

Unfortunately, we are not accepting applications for our Visiting Assistant Professor program at this time.

This program selects scholars in a competitive application process for a full-time, two-year appointment in the School of Law as a Visiting Assistant Professor. Our Health Law Program is consistently ranked highly by law faculty peers. Health Law Scholars receive a stipend and health benefits. In order to have time for research, Health Law Scholars teach a reduced load (two classes per year).
