The American Bar Foundation (ABF) invites scholars to join its intellectual community for the 2013-2014. The ABF encourages national and international scholars on leave or sabbtical to take advantage of its diverse community and excellent facilities in Chicago. The foundation offers an office, telephone, and computer, but no stipend.

Preference will be given to visitors whose scholarship coincides with the research agenda of the ABF, and who will be in residence full-time for all or part of the year. Summer visits are possible. Visitors are expected to particpate in the intellectual life of the foundation, including a weekly seminar.

If you are interested in this opportunity, send an email to Robert Nelson at with the subject line: Visiting Scholars Program and stating (1) the topic on which you are working, (2) preferred dates for residence, (3) the days each week you would expect to be at the ABF, and (4) attach a CV.

Applications should be received by April 1, 2013. Applications will be considered as space allows. The ABF Appointments Committee will review applications and prospective visitors will be notified accordingly.
