Indiana Law: Lateral and Entry Level Positions

[Posted By Bill Henderson]

[Interested in building a truly great law school?  Want a high quality life for you and your family? Consider this opportunity, which ran on SSRN Professional Announcements last week. wdh]

In 2007, Indiana University School of Law-Bloomington received a $25 million gift from the Lilly Foundation for the purpose of attracting and retaining leading scholars and teachers. The gift will enable the Law School to hire up to five senior level professors without limitation to specific curricular subject. In addition, the Law School is seeking outstanding applicants for several entry level openings. Although the entry level and lateral hiring committees are particularly interested in hiring scholars that will leverage and extend the School's current strengths, all qualified candidates will receive careful consideration.                

About the Law School.  The attractions of Indiana Law include:

  • Highly collegial faculty with a longstanding focus on globalization, international law, interdisciplinary research, and law & society scholarship.
  • Attractive law school facilities, including a top-ranked law library.
  • Integration with a major research university on one of the nation's most beautiful campuses. 
  • Excellent, ambitious JD, LLM, and SJD students with strong entering credentials.
  • Strong commitment to curricular innovation to keep pace with a rapidly changing legal profession.
  • Three course teaching load, small average class size, and an excellent student-faculty ratio that will further improve through new faculty hiring.
  • Excellent support for conference travel related to scholarship and professional service and development.
  • A lovely, vibrant Big Ten college town.
  • An active and supportive alumni base.
  • Competitive salary and benefits.

Application Procedure.  The entry level and lateral appointments committees invite      confidential inquiries from scholars at other institutions.  Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should submit a c.v. and a letter summarizing their future career goals in the areas of scholarship, teaching, and service. Please direct these materials, either electronically or through regular mail to the chair of the entry level or lateral appointments committees:
