Calls for Indications of Interest Regarding Future Scholars-in-Residence

Call for Applications

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP welcomes indications of interest for its Scholar-in-Residence Program for the academic year 2015–2016. Indications of interest are invited from all full-time legal academics, particularly in the fields of international arbitration and litigation, private international law, public international law, and comparative law, regardless of seniority or country of qualification.

 The Scholar-in-Residence Program brings talented professors, lecturers and other academics from all jurisdictions to our London office to collaborate with our international arbitration team on both professional matters and academic projects and to contribute generally to the intellectual life of the office.

 Visiting scholars are provided with an office, use of library and other research facilities, and secretarial services, as well as other assistance and support where appropriate. Specific terms and conditions, including the length of residence and weekly time commitments, are determined on a case-by-case basis in light of program participants’ experience and needs, and other academic and professional engagements. Past participants have included distinguished academics in the fields of international dispute resolution, international trade and public international law. Participants have been in residence for periods ranging from one month to nine months, with time commitments ranging from several hours per week to full-time.

 Members of the firm’s International Arbitration group have a significant history of academic involvement. They teach international arbitration and other courses at a number of leading institutions in Europe, North America and Asia and they publish frequently. Gary Born has recently published the second edition of his treatise, International Commercial Arbitration (Kluwer Law International), which provides the most comprehensive available commentary on all aspects of the international commercial arbitration process. Steven Finizio and Duncan Speller are the authors of A Practical Guide to International Commercial Arbitration: Assessment, Planning and Strategy (Sweet & Maxwell, second edition forthcoming in 2014). Franz Schwarz has written a book on Austrian arbitration law and the Vienna rules entitled The Vienna Rules – A Commentary on International Commercial Arbitration in Austria (Kluwer Law International).

 Interested academics are invited to send their resumé/CV to or, together with a brief indication of preferred starting and ending dates of residence and contemplated time commitments. General inquiries regarding the Scholar-in-Residence Program, including for future years, are also invited.
