Seattle University School of Law invites applications for visiting faculty to teach Criminal Law in its Summer 2007 term. The Criminal Law course is a 4-credit course and is offered as an option to entering 1st year students. For those students who exercise the summer option, Criminal Law is the only course that they take, and it is taught in a compressed schedule, meeting Monday through Thursday from either 3:00-5:10 p.m. or 6:00-8:10 p.m. from June 18th through July 26th.
Compensation for summer visitors is $2500 per credit hour, for a total of $10,000 for Criminal Law and includes an extra $2000 to help defray travel expenses. Housing is not provided, but assistance in finding housing is available. Needless to say, summer in Seattle is a glorious time of year.
