Criminal Law Jobs at Idaho

OK, they are also advertising for some less important subject matter areas. From AcademicKeys:

THE UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO COLLEGE OF LAW seeks to fill two entry-level tenure-track positions beginning in the Fall of 2006. Anticipated curricular needs include Contracts, Commercial Law (particularly UCC Article 9 and State Debtor-Creditor Law), Bankruptcy, and Local Government as part of the College’s Business emphasis; and Criminal Law, Evidence, Practice Court (a simulated trial training course), Lawyering Process (a pretrial practice course), Civil Procedure, and Remedies as part of the College’s Advocacy emphasis. Applicants should have a distinguished academic record (from an ABA accredited college) and post J.D. practice, clerking and/or teaching experience. Situated in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, the University of Idaho is a comprehensive research institution that is enriched by its proximity to Washington State University. We will begin reviewing applications on September 15, 2005 and will consider applications until the positions are filled.

EEO / AA Policy: The University of Idaho is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. Applications from those who would increase faculty diversity at the College of Law, or with significant experience working with diverse populations, are encouraged. More information about the College of Law is available at www.law.uidaho.edu.

Katrina Legal Roundup

For your files: A blog with copies of the "looting vs. finding" wire photos.  Katrina victims--college students who transferred to BC--assaulted in Boston.  Evacuee-sex offenders tracked on line. 73 year old accused of stealing food released.  Get ready for the flooded car scam.  Texas authorities welcomed evacuees with criminal background checks; about 9% hits--only 1 active warrant out of 692 checks (including 126 children under 16). Rhode Island had about 50% hits.  Wisconsin also took a peek. [Jack Chin]
