The Academy will take place in early August in Annapolis, MD.  This all-expenses-paid conference will include seminar-style sessions guided by a group of leading faculty, informational sessions and workshops for professional development, and the opportunity to connect to a community of talented students and scholars.  Participants will also receive invitations to ongoing events and academic and professional development resources throughout the year.  

The program is intended for students and recent graduates (three years or less out of law school), including prospective or current clerks, with a serious interest in an academic career, who would contribute to the intellectual diversity of the legal academy, and who are beginning to develop their legal scholarship.  Applicants should possess strong academic qualifications.
