Business, Finance, and Entrepreneurship Law Fellowship

The George Washington University Law School announces the availability of a graduate Fellowship beginning in September 2021 and ending in August 2022, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. The Fellow will also have the title of Visiting Associate Professor of Law. The Fellow will be expected to assist in strengthening GW Law’s institutional support of business, finance and entrepreneurship-related studies, and advising JD and graduate students in GW’s Business and Finance Law Program. The Fellow will engage in research related to the work of the Program and may have the opportunity to publish articles that result from the research. The Fellow will assist in the organization of speaker series and conferences at GW. Finally, the Fellow will be responsible for some routine administrative tasks in support of the Business and Finance Law Program.

We are currently seeking applications from candidates with strong legal academic backgrounds and some professional experience. An MBA or other non-law graduate degree of relevance to business, finance and entrepreneurship is a plus, as is a doctoral-level degree in law and/or some prior exposure (graduate or undergraduate) to academic frameworks regarding business, finance and innovation-driven entrepreneurship subjects. Fellows receive an annual stipend of $55,000, health insurance, and other benefits associated with a full-time position at GW.

Applicants should send a letter of interest, a resume, a list of references, and a complete law school transcript by August 31, 2021 to the faculty director of the Business and Finance Law Program, Dalia Mitchell. The preferred submission method is by email to [email protected]..
