Fellowship: GWU 2-year (2014-2016) Environment & Energy Fellowship (Deadline: Apr. 25, 2014)

GW is seeking a top law graduate for a two-year Environment and Energy Fellowship to begin during the summer of 2014. A description of the Fellowship follows.

Environment and Energy Law Fellowship

The George Washington University Law School announces the availability of a graduate Fellowship for the academic years of 2014-16. The Fellow will enroll on a part-time basis in the Environmental LL.M. program and will receive an LL.M. degree after completing all course requirements.  The Fellow will engage in research, teaching, conference organizing and other activities in support of the environmental and energy law program.
The 2014-16 Fellow will begin in the summer of 2014. The Fellow will be expected to assist in teaching a course on Environmental Lawyering offered each semester, including the summer semester.  The Fellow will also help supervise students participating in GW’s Environment and Energy Policy Practicum, a clinic-like program in which students undertake a semester-long research project on behalf of an environmental or energy organization or a government agency.  The Fellow will also engage in environmental research related to the work of the environment and energy program and may have the opportunity to publish articles that result from the research.  For example, our 2012-2014 Fellow co-authored two book chapters, co-edited a book and co-wrote a law review article with GW faculty while at GW, in addition to publishing one of her own articles.  The Fellow will also assist in the organization of a major environment each year and help with organization of policy dialogues for our energy programs.  Finally, the Fellowship will be responsible for some routine administrative tasks.
 We are currently seeking applications from candidates with strong academic, writing, research and environmental and, or energy policy development experience. Some previous law practice and teaching experience are a plus. Fellows receive an annual stipend between $45,000 and $50,000, tuition remission for the LL.M. program, health insurance and other benefits, and possible student loan deferment.
 Applicants should send letters of interest, resumes, a list of references, and a complete law school transcript by April 25, 2014 to Associate Dean Lee Paddock.
