Invitation to teach Elective Courses at NLSIU
May 27, 2021
NLSIU invites interested faculty to offer Elective Courses to our students for the upcoming term from July 1 to September 25, 2021. As COVID pandemic conditions persist, these elective courses will be delivered online. An elective course at NLSIU requires 40 hours of classroom engagement. These courses may be delivered in two formats:
A. Full Term Elective with 40 hours of classroom engagement spread across 10 weeks (July 1 –September 25, 2021); OR
B. Intensive Elective with 40 hours of classroom engagement, with 4 hours each day for 10 days (August 2, 2021 – August 12, 2021).
Elective Courses vary in their focus and pedagogy. Three types of Elective Courses are common at NLSIU:
- Taught Course (predominantly lecture/discussion based, with an exam);
- Research Course (focused on review of primary and secondary research leading to a Term Paper);
- Practice or Clinical Course (focused on field work, simulation, drafting or litigation exercises examined through the clinical methods).
Faculty must invariably possess a graduate and post-graduate degree in law or the Social Sciences. Alternatively, they may have at least 7 years of post-qualification experience in legal practice. Many faculty have published widely in their fields of expertise.
To apply, kindly fill out the form here. The last date to submit the form is June 13, 2021.
