The Center for the Study of Law and Society invites applications for visiting scholars for 2013-2014. The Center fosters empirical research and theoretical analysis concerning legal institutions, legal processes, legal change, and the social consequences of law. Closely linked to the School of Law, CSLS creates a multidisciplinary milieu with a faculty of distinguished socio-legal scholars in sociology of law, political science, criminal justice studies, law and economics, legal history, law and psychology, and legal and social philosophy, along with visiting socio-legal scholars from the United States and around the world.
Among the benefits of being a visiting scholar at the Center for the Study of Law and Society are: library privileges at the Law School and at all campus libraries; invitation to our weekly Bag Lunch Speaker Series, workshops, and scholarly exchanges; UCB campus privileges, such as athletic facilities and permission to audit classes; and, when possible, assignment to shared or other office space and use of computer, internet, and other facilities. The Center will consider applications for periods of time that vary from one month duration to the full academic year.
The deadline for applications is November 16, 2012. More information, including full details about the application process, is available here: http://www.law.berkeley.edu/1273.htm.
