Berkeley Law offers a unique program of graduate study in law and society, leading to the Ph.D. degree in Jurisprudence and Social Policy (JSP). More information about the JSP Program can be found
at: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/academics/doctoral-programs/jsp/. Candidates interested in teaching as a faculty member within the JSP Program should have an interest in the teaching and mentoring of Ph.D. students admitted to the JSP Program in the School of Law. Given the multi-disciplinary character of the JSP Program, JSP faculty members are expected to help support students across a range of academic approaches, as well as within their own area of disciplinary training. We welcome expressions of interest in the JSP Program from candidates in any subject area.
