Visiting Assistant Professor Program

Northwestern Law is not currently accepting applications to the Visiting Assistant Professor program. Please check back for further information.

Thank you very much for your interest in Northwestern Law.

Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP)
The NU VAP Program permits scholars to engage in research and teaching in a collaborative environment before seeking a tenure-track research position.  VAPs join the Northwestern Law faculty on a full-time basis for at least one semester and typically teach one course per semester.  Each VAP should expect to present one or more research papers to the faculty workshop series.

Appointments to the VAP program are not appointments to a tenure-track position. Any such appointment requires a separate and independent decision by the faculty, the Dean, and the University Provost and Board of Trustees. Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States. Northwestern is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
