Texas Law Academic Fellowships

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Texas Law Academic Fellowships program.  The program supports individuals who are committed to obtaining an appointment as a tenure-track member of a law faculty.  Academic Fellows are in residence at the University of Texas School of Law for two years and are expected to enter the law school teaching market in the fall of their second year.  Academic Fellows are fully integrated into the rich intellectual community at the University of Texas School of Law, will have an assigned mentor, and will have many opportunities to develop their research agenda, writing projects, and teaching skills.
