About the Freedman Fellowship Program
Since 1975, the Abraham L. Freedman Teaching Fellowship Program at the Beasley School of Law of Temple University has produced outstanding law school teachers, with graduates found at accredited law schools throughout the United States. The experienced lawyers admitted to the Freedman Fellow program receive an annual stipend and receive an LLM. Fellows gain extensive practice in law school teaching and receive the support to produce quality scholarship during their residence. Fellows work collaboratively with Temple faculty members on doctrinal courses and teach alongside the professors in our nationally-renowned legal research and writing program. In their final semester, Fellows teach an upper-level course in Temple’s curriculum.
The two-year program provides the training and experience critical to becoming a successful law school teacher. Each Fellow:
- Teaches a section of legal research and writing in the first and second year of the program
- Participates in three collaborations in substantive courses with full time faculty
- Teaches one upper-level course in the final semester of the Program.
- Attend faculty-directed seminars about current issues in legal education
Fellows receive scholarly support and are expected to produce a thesis of publishable quality. Fellows also receive financial support to attend scholarly conferences.
