Each year the University of Chicago Law School awards six Harry A. Bigelow Teaching Fellowships. The Fellowship offers law school graduates an opportunity to prepare for an academic career. Fellows can pursue scholarly interests, attend workshops, interact with other faculty, and audit courses or seminars. The Bigelow program has been very successful in placing its Fellows in tenure-track academic positions in law schools. The Fellows’ primary responsibility is to design and carry out a program of tutorial instruction for first-year students. The Bigelow Program provides instruction in legal research, writing, and analysis. Initial Fellowship appointments are for one year and can be renewed for a second year.
