The   Center   for   International   Legal   Studies,   in   cooperation   with   law   faculties   in   Eastern   Europe   and   the former   republics   of   the   Soviet   Union,   will   offer   short-term   appointments   to   as   many   as   100   senior lawyers from Common Law countries in spring and autumn 2018. A   “senior   lawyer”   has   accumulated   at   least   15   years   of   significant   practice   experience   in   the   area   in which   he   or   she   proposes   to   lecture.   The   term   of   teaching   may   be   from   two   to   six   weeks   and   the   length of   appointment   and   dates   of   teaching   are   subject   to   negotiation   between   the   appointee   and   the   host university.   The   subject   areas   are   not   limited,   but   there   is   special   interest   in   corporate   and   business   law, intellectual property, litigation, arbitration, and criminal procedure. The   purpose   of   the   seminars   will   be   to   introduce   particular   areas   of   Common   Law   legal   systems   to   the law    students    and    the    junior    faculty    of    the    host    university.    These    faculty    appointments    are    not remunerated,   and   the   appointee   is   responsible   for   his   or   her   travel.   The   host   university   will   assist   with lodging.    Completion    of    a    distance-learning    component    is    mandatory    prior    to    assumption    of    the appointment.   Pre-appointment   interviews   also   are   mandatory   and   will   be   conducted   via   Skype   video conference.
All teaching appointments are made through CILS Benefactors, a 501(c)3 corporation registered as a Colorado charity. Thus, reasonable expenses associated with the assignment are tax deductible.
