The University of Michigan Law School seeks applicants for one or more openings for the position of Clinical Assistant Professor of Law beginning in the 2009-2010 academic year. The Law School will be hiring at least one professor, and maybe more, to teach in the Legal Practice Program.
The Legal Practice Program is a first-year, five-unit, two-semester program that integrates legal analysis, research, writing, advocacy, and other aspects of the practice of law. The position is a twelve-month, non-tenure-track contract appointment. The initial contract length is two years. Professors are then eligible for an additional two-year contract, after which professors are eligible for successive three-year contracts. Base salary range is $60,000-69,999.
Applicants should have excellent academic records and extensive legal research and writing experience. Prior teaching experience is highly advantageous but not essential. The appointments are open to practicing attorneys, judicial clerks, and other persons having at least three years of legal experience following graduation from law school.
To apply, send a letter of application, a resume, a writing sample, examples of teaching materials (if applicable), and the names and phone numbers of three professional references to Philip Frost, Director, Legal Practice Program, University of Michigan Law School, 625 S. State St., Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1215. If you prefer to e-mail your application, you may send application materials to Rachel Croskery-Roberts, Associate Director, Legal Practice Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be accepted until November 15, 2008.
