Although many law schools, both in the United States and to a lesser extent abroad, hire faculty members other than their own to teach summer school, this has always been a haphazard process. Given the success of sharing information about entry level teaching jobs over at Prawfs Blawg, establishing a general clearinghouse for law school summer teaching positions is likely to provide a great benefit for both law faculty and law schools across the country and the world. The Health Law Prof Blog has agreed to host the clearinghouse by posting all of the notices of teaching opportunities, in all subjects, for the Summer of 2012.
I hope this becomes a valuable resource for law professors and law schools.
