A

of

teaching

may

be

from

two

to

six

weeks

and

the

length

of

and

dates

of

teaching

are

subject

to

negotiation

between

the

appointee

and

host

university.

Subject

areas

are

not

limited,

but

there

is

special

interest

in

corporate

and business law, intellectual property, litigation, arbitration, and criminal procedure.

The

purpose

of

the

will

be

to

particular

areas

of

Common

legal

systems

to

law

students

and

junior

of

the
