Frank H. Marks Intellectual Property Fellowship

The Marks Fellowship is designed to assist attorneys who are interested in pursuing a full-time legal academic career in some area of intellectual property law. In the past, Marks Fellows have joined GW Law from judicial clerkships as well as from private practice and other legal positions.

The successful candidate will also serve as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at GW Law from August 2018 through August 2020. During that time, the Marks Fellow will teach one course per academic year, will assist with the administration of the GW Law's renowned Intellectual Property Program, and will have the opportunity to pursue scholarly projects, typically resulting in articles for publication in law reviews. Marks Fellows normally apply for full-time legal academic positions during the fall semester of the second year of the Fellowship. Most previous Marks Fellows have gone on to hold tenure-track or tenured positions at law schools.

Electronic applications should include:

  • a resume;
  • a list of references, including academic references;
  • a law school transcript;
  • a copy of of (or link to) a sample of a published work or other writing in law or a related field;
  • a proposal describing the candidate's scholarly interests, including the specific project or projects he or she aims to complete while in residence at the law school.
