The University of La Verne College of Law invites applications for one or more full-time, tenure-track positions in its directed legal writing program, beginning in the 2010-2011 academic year. The school may have interests in other areas, including property, though its needs in other areas are uncertain at this time. La Verne seeks candidates with a strong commitment to teaching, scholarship, and service to the legal profession. Its mission is to educate ethically sensitive, practice-ready lawyers dedicated to community service.
La Verne Law is committed to its continued development as a vibrant, research-active academic community and excellence in scholarship is highly valued. Teaching for at least one year at an ABA-approved law school is preferred, though the school is interested in hearing from both entry-level and lateral candidates. It values faculty who are able to use their practice experience to innovate in the classroom and beyond. The rank of Assistant, Associate, or Professor depends upon qualifications and experience.
