Call for Faculty Visitors, American Bar Foundation

Call For Faculty Visitors
American Bar Foundation

The American Bar Foundation invites scholars to join the intellectual community of the ABF for the 2007-2008 academic year (8/30/07 to 6/30/08). The ABF can offer an office and phone, and possibly a computer. We are not able to offer a stipend or expenses. Preference will be given to visitors whose scholarship coincides with the research agenda of the ABF and who will be in residence fulltime. Visitors will participate in the intellectual life of the ABF and are expected to attend weekly seminars.

If you have an interest in this opportunity, please send an email to Terry Halliday (, chair, Appointments Committee), which states (1) the topic on which you are working, (2) the preferred dates for residence, and (3) the days each week you would expect to be at the ABF. Please also attach a CV. Applications should be received by April 1, 2007, though later applications will be considered as space allows. Applications will be reviewed by the ABF Appointments Committee and prospective visitors will be notified in late April 2007.

The American Bar Foundation is a nonprofit, independent, national research institute committed to basic empirical research on law and legal institutions, with an annual operating budget of $5 million dollars. Its program of sociolegal research is conducted by an interdisciplinary staff of 22 Research Fellows and Faculty Fellows trained in such diverse fields as law, sociology, psychology, political science, economics, history, and anthropology. The Foundation's work is supported by the American Bar Endowment, The Fellows of the American Bar Foundation, and by grants for particular research projects and other Foundation programs from private foundations and government agencies.
