The following is an announcement from the University of Baltimore School of Law:
"The University of Baltimore School of Law invites applications for two tenure-track faculty members to teach in our Legal Analysis, Research, and Writing (LARW) program.
"The successful candidates will each teach one section of a required, first-year, fall semester course combining instruction in torts and legal research and writing. We expect the size of each section to be 30-35 students. Our second and third semester LARW courses will continue to be taught by adjunct faculty and student teaching assistants, under the direction of a full-time faculty member. The successful candidates will administer and teach those courses on a rotating basis with other program faculty. Successful candidates’ teaching loads may include other courses, depending on the candidates’ interests and the law school’s needs. The positions carry the same scholarship requirements as all other tenure-track positions at the University of Baltimore, which may be satisfied by analytical writing in legal research and writing or other fields. All faculty members at the University of Baltimore are expected to participate in faculty governance and other service activities.
"Applicants should submit a cover letter; a current resume; and the names, addresses and telephone numbers of three references. Applications sent via e-mail are preferred and should be sent to Professor Michael J. Hayes, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org. Hard copy applications may be sent to Professor Hayes at the University of Baltimore School of Law, 1420 North Charles St., Baltimore, MD, 21201. For more information on the LARW program, visit our web site, http://law.ubalt.edu/larw/index.html, or contact Amy Sloan at 410-837-6529 or email@example.com.
"The Appointments Committee will begin to review applications on September 1, 2006, and will continue to review applications until the positions are filled. For full consideration, applications should be received by September 29, 2006.
"The University of Baltimore has strong commitments to the principle of equal employment opportunity and to the objective of having a diverse faculty. In furtherance of these commitments, we welcome applications from women and minorities.
