CodeX 2012/13 Fellowship at Stanford Law
July 11, 2012 at 1:14 PM
CodeX - the Stanford Center for Legal Informatics is accepting applications for a Resident Fellowship for the 2012-13 academic year. CodeX is a cross-disciplinary research center jointly operated by the Stanford Law School and the Stanford School of Engineering. The center's mission is to explore the application of technology toward improving the quality, efficiency, and accessibility of the legal system. CodeX research fellows will have the opportunity to spend one or two years at Stanford Law School collaborating with scholars in computer science and other relevant disciplines. Fellows will work on the center's existing projects, and all have the opportunity to explore related research on their own and commence new projects. Fellows will work with cutting edge technologies emerging from Stanford's engineering departments, and will be expected to bring a legally oriented perspective toward integrating these technologies into the law. Sample projects include automating the process of intellectual property licensing and developing automated legal compliance systems. Fellows will also be involved in bringing in leading thinkers in the field to speak at the law school on these topic areas and will work with law and computer science students to engage them in the center's activities.
Applicants should have JD or equivalent law degree. Because the primary focus of the center is employing technology within the law, applicants should also have experience in computer science or engineering related fields. We welcome applicants with practical/professional technical experience in these fields as well as those with formal computer science or engineering undergraduate or graduate training. Applicants should be capable of learning and be comfortable with technological aspects of the center's projects.
Salary for the fellowship will be approximately $52,000 per year with benefits.
