More Openings for Business Law Teachers/Scholars

Today, I am at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools ("SEALS") annual conference working with aspiring law professors.  More on that and other aspects of SEALS next week.  But it seems a number of law schools are hiring for the 2019-20 academic year, some specifically looking for business law folks and others looking for MVPs that may include business law folks.  Set forth below are several of the messages I have gotten in the past few weeks.  Hopefully, I have managed not to repeat a notice someone else already has posted . . . .
