Peking University School of Transnational Law Seeks C.V. Starr Fellows for 2018-19

The Peking University School of Transnational Law, in Shenzhen, China, is now recruiting C.V. Starr Lecturers of Law for a term from late July 2018 through June 2019. Lecturers primarily teach in the School’s first-year legal research and writing program but will also have the opportunity to teach a 1-credit course of their own design. The School of Transnational Law is the only law school that offers a dual Juris Doctor in common law and Juris Master in Chinese law program.

Lecturers teach small interactive classes, provide guidance and feedback to students, and in collaboration with the other fellows design lesson plans and research and writing problems. Lecturers also participate in the life of the faculty, including faculty workshops, meetings, admissions interviews, and theses defense panels. Lecturers receive housing, comprehensive medical insurance, transportation to and from their country of origin, and support for professional development. Candidates must possess a JD degree. The ability to speak Mandarin is helpful for living in Shenzhen but not necessary; on the other hand, living in Shenzhen provides a golden opportunity for learning or improving Mandarin, as well as becoming more familiar with Chinese life and culture.

In prior years, if both the fellow and the school found it appropriate, many fellows have renewed for additional years. Alumni of the program now teach at major universities including the University of Michigan, work in academic administration at major universities including New York University, and work at leading law firms and non-governmental organizations worldwide.

The official announcement can be found at http://stl.pku.edu.cn/about-stl/jobs-at-stl/c-v-starr-lecturers-of-law-2018-2019/. Candidates should submit a resume or CV, a letter of interest, a list of two references, and transcript. Please submit materials or inquiries by email to Christian Pangilinan, Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs, at christian@stl.pku.edu.cn
