STETSON UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LAW seeks both experienced and entry-level applicants for the 2006–2007 academic year.  With its main campus in Gulfport, Florida, which is adjacent to St. Petersburg on Florida’s west central coast, Stetson was established in 1900 and is Florida’s oldest law school.  Stetson also has a part-time program with classes held on both its Gulfport campus and its satellite campus in Tampa.  Stetson has earned a national reputation for its advocacy and higher education programs, and has centers for excellence in advocacy, elder law, higher education law and policy, and international law.  We encourage potential applicants to visit our Web site at to learn more about our school and programs.

Our plan is to hire tenured, mid-level lateral hires, or entry-level tenure-track professors in the following subject-matter areas: Contracts (two positions) (the basic course and UCC and/or Remedies); Constitutional Law; Tax (basic and advanced courses); and Clinic Administrator (this person would teach courses and supervise various clinics, including prosecution, public defender, civil poverty, and local government clinics).  The above-named courses and subject-matter needs may be met singularly or in combination with other courses.   Prior teaching experience is preferred but not required.  We are also seeking an experienced Director of Academic Success.  This position can be structured as either a tenure-track position or as a long-term contract with an Assistant Dean title.  Finally, we will be hiring at least one faculty member to teach Legal Research and Writing; the status of this position will be similar to clinical tenure track.

Stetson encourages applications from women, minorities, and others whose backgrounds will facilitate a stimulating and diverse cultural and intellectual environment.  Applicants must have a strong academic record; some practical experience; and be committed to outstanding teaching, scholarship, and service.  The Committee will begin reviewing applications on September 1, 2005.  Applications received before October 15, 2005 will be given full consideration.  Most initial screening interviews will be conducted during the AALS’ 2005 Faculty Recruitment Conference in Washington, D.C. on November 10-12, 2005.
