The Valparaiso University School of Law is seeking a visitor to teach in its first-year legal writing program for the 2008-09 academic year. Applicants should be currently teaching legal writing or have had recent experience doing so. Valparaiso seeks candidates with a strong record of academic achievement. Persons of color, women, and others who will add to the school's diversity are encouraged to apply.
The first-year legal writing program is a required, two-semester course, totaling four credits for the year. Legal research is taught by the law librarians in a separate course, totaling two credits for the year. The two courses are coordinated. The Legal Writing Visitor will teach the same students in both semesters and will have the help of student teaching assistants (one TA for approximately every eight students). Valparaiso's legal writing curriculum uses materials coordinated by the Director of Legal Writing.
Send your application by mail or e-mail to JoEllen Lind, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, 243 Wesemann Hall, School of Law, Valparaiso University, 656 S. Greenwich St., Valparaiso, Indiana 46383.
