Northern Kentucky University, Salmon P. Chase College of Law has announced openings for one or more tenured or tenure-track legal writing positions to begin in the 2009-10 academic year. Legal writing faculty teach two sections of legal writing each semester (total 36-40 students), with a focus on objective writing in the fall and persuasive writing and oral advocacy in the spring. Although legal writing faculty are not required to teach legal research, they reinforce the skills taught in separate research classes.
Legal writing faculty members at Chase fully participate and contribute to the life and governance of the College of Law. The school is looking for candidates with excellent academic credentials who are committed to both teaching and scholarship. While prior legal teaching experience and scholarship will be looked upon favorably, they are not requirements for the position. Legal Writing Professors are entitled to participate in faculty meetings and governance and to vote on all matters consistent with the rights of all tenure-track and tenured faculty. The salary range is in the $70,000s.
NKU-Chase is located in Highland Heights, Kentucky, approximately six miles southeast of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. To apply, send a cover letter indicating your interest in the legal writing position, along with a resume and writing sample, to Professor Chris Gulinello, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, Chase College of Law, Northern Kentucky University, Nunn Hall, Highland Heights, Kentucky 41099. The school asks that you also send an electronic version of your resume and cover letter to Professor Gulinello.
