Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, located on New York 's Long Island, invites applications for two faculty members to teach in our Legal Process program starting in August, 2007.

The successful candidates will each teach two sections of Legal Process, a required, first-year, two semester, six credit course focusing on instruction in legal research, analysis and writing, and introduction of practice related skills, including interviewing, client counseling, and oral advocacy.  We expect the size of each section to be 15-17 students. Although the final salary for the two positions has yet to be set, we expect the salary to range from $70,000 a year to $89,000 a year, based on teaching experience and demonstrated excellence in the Legal Writing/Legal Research area.

All faculty members at Touro College Law Center are expected to participate in faculty governance and other service activities. Legal Process Professors have a vote on all matters other than tenure. After two years of teaching, Legal Process Professors are eligible for long term contracts.

In October 2006, Touro Law Center will relocate to a newly constructed state of the art facility located in Central Islip, New York. The new building is adjacent to federal, state, and county courthouses. We are in the process of revising the curriculum to allow students to utilize access to the courthouses in furthering their legal education.
