Harvard Law School invites applications for appointments as Climenko Fellows in its First-Year Legal Research and Writing Program. Climenko Fellows are promising legal scholars with high academic achievements and a strong interest in teaching. The Fellows will teach the Program and devote themselves to scholarship in preparation for entry into the teaching market. The Law School anticipates hiring at least six Climenko Fellows for the 2014-16 term.
The First-Year Legal Research and Writing Program (LRW) is a series of sequenced, interrelated exercises introducing students to the way lawyers conduct legal research, analyze and frame legal positions, and present their work in writing and in oral argument. The course includes weekly meetings led by Climenko Fellows, library staff, and upper class teaching assistants. Students actively learn research and writing skills by preparing multiple drafts of memoranda and other documents and by becoming familiar with accessing both print and electronic research materials.
