Law Teaching and Scholarship Guide

This guide provides sources for students and alumni who are considering careers in academia, as well as those who are already making the transition to teaching positions.

Introduction

The Georgetown University Law Center places its share of graduates in law teaching positions, ranking in the top ten of law schools nationwide during the past several years. To help facilitate future careers in academia among current students and alumni, the library has created a research guide on the subject of law teaching and scholarship.

This guide is designed to help students and alumni who are considering careers in academia, as well as those who are already making the transition to teaching positions. We have included background resources about the legal academy, as well as resources that deal with the hiring process and diversity issues. New and aspiring law professors can also find sources which discuss different approaches to legal scholarship and teaching, along with advice to new professors on teaching methods and scholarly publications. Finally, we have listed major journals that can be consulted for further research on the subject.
