Call for Applications: ​​Clifford Scholar-in-Residence (Fall 2022)

​In Fall 2022, DePaul University College of Law will host a rising star in civil justice as the third annual Clifford Scholar in Residence.  This program complements the Clifford Symposium, which has successfully brought together leading civil justice scholars for over 26 years to share ideas and publish their work. In some years (most recently in 2019) the Clifford Symposium has highlighted “rising stars," who have presented their work with in-depth commentary from senior scholars. 

The Clifford Scholar in Residence program will continue the tradition of developing up-and-coming civil justice scholars. Last year's honoree was Professor Maria Glover of Georgetown Law. The 2022 Clifford Scholar will be selected by a committee of leading civil justice professors. This year the committee will consist of Professors Stephan Landsman (DePaul College of Law and Brooklyn Law School), David Hyman (Georgetown), and Shari Diamond (Northwestern).   

DePaul College of Law will host the Clifford Scholar for 1-2 days during Fall 2022. He or she would participate in classes and faculty activities commensurate with his or her areas of expertise, culminating in a presentation to the entire DePaul community. This presentation would feature a presentation by the Clifford Scholar and a response by a visiting senior commentator.  Invitees would include academics, practitioners, and students.

Preference will be given to law school full-time tenure-track or tenured professors, 5-10 years into their scholarly career with the potential to become a nationalized recognized scholar in civil justice.   

An honorarium of $10,000 will be paid to the selected scholar in residence, in addition to travel expenses. 

Please submit a CV and a cover letter (describing your interest and most recent work) no later than June 10, 2022, to:​
