University of Kentucky College of Law Academic Success and Legal Writing Specialist
The University of Kentucky College of Law seeks an Academic Success Program Director who will be primarily responsible for implementing the Legal Education Access Program (LEAP), a program that includes a variety of efforts designed to encourage students from economically disadvantaged rural and urban communities to attend law school and ultimately return to their communities to encourage others to attend law school. Part of LEAP includes the Ambassadors of the Law program in which students travel throughout Kentucky visiting colleges and high schools to enhance understanding about legal education possibilities. Because LEAP includes an intense legal writing component for the ASP participants, the position includes responsibilities of an Assistant Director of Legal Writing and the various academic support efforts involved in that program.
The ASP Director will be responsible for program operation, development, and evaluation. S/he will plan the schedule of classes and other events; coordinate participant recruitment, application and selection processes; select and oversee ASP student mentors; and ensure the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of all program records and databases. The ASP Director will be responsible for program enhancement and development, including all programmatic assessment and revision, design and innovation initiatives, grant writing and other efforts to obtain additional resources for the program, its participants, and/or its activities.
Minimum qualifications are Juris Doctor and four years of related experience and a current Bar license from any state that will allow you to practice law.
