The Jaharis Health Law Institute is accepting applications for a Faculty Fellow in Health Law and Intellectual Property/Information Technology. We are looking to hire for this coming academic year and plan to start interviews in the coming weeks.

Established in 1984 and supported by the Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute (JHLI), DePaul’s health law program has consistently ranked among the top in the nation. JHLI offers students coursework that reflects the diversity of health law from community health to high-tech health care, making DePaul a leader in the education of future generations of health law partners, policy makers and critical thinkers.

About the Fellowship:

An endowment at the DePaul University College of Law funds a faculty fellowship program for scholars to create and disseminate scholarship and teach courses where two dynamic legal fields are increasingly intersecting—intellectual property/information technology and health law, broadly construed. The fellowship is designed to encourage scholars interested in entering a career in legal academia in these fields. The Jaharis Faculty Fellow will work with and be mentored by faculty from DePaul’s nationally-ranked Mary and Michael Jaharis Health Law Institute (JHLI) and Center for Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology (CIPLIT®).


The Fellow will be expected to:

  • Teach curricular offerings at the intersection of health & IP/IT;
  • Write and present scholarly work in health & IP/IT;
  • Supervise and advise LLM and MJ students in these areas;
  • Support the work of CIPLIT® and JHLI;
  • Continue the work of the Jaharis podcast.

The appointment will be for one academic year, with the possibility of extending for one additional year.
