Visiting Faculty Position - California Western Law in San Diego
California Western School of Law in San Diego is looking for visiting faculty with Professional Responsibility and clinical/skills teaching experience to work in its new STEPPS Program.
STEPPS (Skills Training for Ethical and Preventive Practice and career Satisfaction) is a two-semester, second year course. It combines professional responsibility and advanced legal skills including research, writing, interviewing, counseling, case planning, negotiation and mediation in a simulated law office setting. Students attend a large class each week in which they discuss professional responsibility and the fundamentals of the lawyering skills. Students also participate in small class sections (simulated law offices with 16 students) each week. They work on the simulated cases and use them as a basis for role plays and examination of issues of professional responsibility, ethics, problem solving and prevention and career satisfaction. Much of the course is built upon the students’ simulated case work.
The candidate would be responsible for teaching the large class sections that focus on professional responsibility and lawyering skills. The candidate would also supervise the adjunct faculty that lead the small law office sections.
For more information about STEPPS, see the article in the Complete Lawyer and the California Western website. Interested persons should contact Professor Janet Weinstein. Candidates should send CVs and letters of interest to Professor Weinstein.
California Western is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and values diversity. Applications from individuals who will contribute to the diversity of the law school are encouraged.
