Through its Abraham L. Kaminstein Scholar in Residence Program, the Copyright Office is honored to invite leading academics with a demonstrated commitment to the study of copyright law and policy to spend time at the Copyright Office, conducting research and working on mutually beneficial projects. Appointments are not made on any fixed schedule but are instead based on the availability of qualified candidates and meaningful projects as well as the Office's funding and priorities at the time of consideration.
Academics (professors, fellows, and the like) with significant experience teaching or analyzing issues in legal, copyright, and related fields and who are interested in the Abraham L. Kaminstein Scholar Program should submit a letter of inquiry describing their research interests as they relate to the Copyright Office, accompanied by a current CV or resume, to [email protected].
Abraham L. Kaminstein served as the sixth Register of Copyrights, from 1960 to 1971. He was a leading force in adapting the copyright registration system to the public interest, and in laying the groundwork for the general revision of copyright law.
