Stanford Law School seeks to hire the best talent and to promote a safe and secure environment for all members of the university community and its property. To that end, new staff hires must successfully pass a background check prior to starting work at Stanford University.

At Stanford Law School, we are driven by a passion for new ideas and a commitment to transformative solutions. True to our roots in Silicon Valley and our Stanford heritage, we focus on the future — not the past. Experimentation, exploration, the translation of new knowledge into entrepreneurial solutions: All are in our DNA. So is interdisciplinary learning, pioneered at Stanford. SLS faculty stay close to the pulse of law as it is practiced in the 21st century and guide our academic program to address emerging opportunities in the profession. With alumni and students as partners, they champion law as an instrument of positive change on scales local, regional, national and global.

Stanford Law School is currently seeking an inaugural Pipeline Project Manager for our recently announced national residential pipeline project to launch in Summer 2019.

  • Refine program curriculum as needed
  • Assist/guide program alumni through the law school application process once they are at the applicant stage
