The WilmerHale Scholar-in-Residence initiative allows talented professors, lecturers and other academics from all jurisdictions to work with our international arbitration team on both professional matters and academic projects and to contribute in general to the intellectual life of the office.
Visiting scholars are provided an office, use of the library and research facilities, and secretarial support and other support services. The exact terms and conditions of each appointment, including the length of the residence and weekly time commitments, are determined on a case-by-case basis in light of experience, needs and other academic and professional engagements. Past participants have been in residence for periods varying from 6 weeks to 18 months with time commitments ranging from a few hours a week to full-time.
Indications of interest are invited from all full-time legal academics, particularly in the fields of international arbitration and litigation, private international law, public international law, and comparative law, regardless of seniority or country of qualification. Please send your Curriculum Vitae to John Trenor together with a brief indication of your preferred starting and ending dates of residence and contemplated time commitments. General inquiries regarding the Program, including for future years, are also invited.
