Directory of Teaching Fellowships & VAPs

Information about the fellowship and visiting assistant professor programs in this directory is updated regularly, but may not be absolutely current. A law school’s website will have the most current information. AALS is not recommending any particular fellowship or VAP.  

Check out this series of interviews from law school hiring chair Jessica Erickson. She talked with the directors of a variety of VAP and fellowship program directors as well as directors of advanced degree programs.

Law schools may submit and update information in the directory by using this form. We thank Pepperdine Law School Dean Paul Caron, who has published information on available fellowships and VAPs on his TaxProf Blog since 2008. Others who have contributed to Becoming a Law Teacher are acknowledged here.
