The University of Baltimore School of Law has an opening for a visitor to teach the Introduction to Lawyering Skills (ILS) course next fall. The course is integrated with a doctrinal subject. The school is looking for someone to teach ILS integrated with Contracts, Torts, or Civil Procedure. Both ILS/Contracts and ILS/Civil Procedure are 6-credit courses; ILS/Torts is a 7-credit course. Students get 3 or 4 credits of doctrinal instruction and 3 credits of ILS instruction integrated together into a single course. The school would prefer hiring someone who has taught an integrated course, but is also interested in someone who has taught both legal research and writing and Contracts, Civil Procedure, or Torts and who is willing to give the integrated course a try. The class will have about 40 students. An adjunct professor and teaching assistants are available to assist in teaching the course and grading the assignments. The ILS class is only offered in the fall semester, although the school has other teaching needs for the spring. A full year visitor will teach two courses in the spring semester, which could include writing or non-writing courses. The school is open to considering either a 1-semester or full-year visitor. The expected salary range for a full-year position is $80,000 to $90,000.
If you have questions about the visitorship, contact either Professor Amy Sloan (410-837-6529) or Professor Eric Easton (410-837-4874). Applicants should forward a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to either Professor Sloan or Professor Easton at the Legal Skills Program, University of Baltimore School of Law, 1420 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21201.
