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 2015. 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. A one-week orientation seminar in Salzburg,  Austria, is mandatory prior to assumption of the appointment. Pre-  appointment interviews are mandatory and will be conducted via Skype  video conference.
