tenure-track and teaching fellow job openings at Thomas Jefferson School of Law

Thomas Jefferson School of Law anticipates hiring one or more persons to teach Legal Writing beginning in Fall 2010.

Tenure-Track Position:  Thomas Jefferson's legal writing program is taught primarily by tenure line faculty members.  More information regarding the program can be found by clicking here.

The successful candidate will teach one or two sections of Legal Writing I each semester and share responsibility for the overall legal writing curriculum.  The successful candidate will have the opportunity to teach one or two doctrinal or elective courses outside the legal writing curriculum each year.  The position carries the same scholarship requirement as all tenure-track positions at the law school; the scholarship requirement may be satisfied by analytical writing in legal research and writing or in other fields.  All faculty members at the law school participate in faculty governance and service activities.

Applicants should submit a cover letter and resume to Linda Keller, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, 2121 San Diego Avenue, San Diego, CA 92110 or by e-mail to lkeller [at] tjsl.edu with the subject line: FAC, followed by your name.

The position advertised is a tenure-track appointment and the professor hired will be permitted to vote in faculty meetings.  The school anticipates paying an annual academic year base salary in the range $90,000 or more.  The number of students enrolled in each semester of the courses taught by the legal research & writing professor will be 41-45.  Each section of Legal Writing I is approximately 20-25 students.  The successful applicant will also teach doctrinal or elective course(s) of varying size.

TJSL Teaching Fellowship:  The purpose of the fellowship is to supplement the tenure line faculty who teach Legal Writing (LW) with Fellows from diverse backgrounds, legal practice experience, and academic interests; to provide an opportunity to move from practice to law teaching and scholarship; and to provide mentoring and training to promising teachers to continue to provide our students with high quality instruction.

Each Fellow would typically teach 2 sections of LWI in the Fall.  In the Spring, the Fellow would teach 1 section of a course such as LWI, LWII or a seminar depending upon the Fellow’s interest and institutional needs.  More information regarding the LW program can be found by clicking here.  The Fellowship term would begin in July so that the Fellow would have sufficient time to develop the necessary memo assignments prior to the start of classes in the Fall.  The Fellow would be given support to produce a publishable law review article by the conclusion of the Fellow’s anticipated two-year term.

Applicants should send a cover letter and resume to Linda Keller, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, 2121 San Diego Avenue, San Diego, CA 92110 or by e-mail to lkeller [at] tjsl.edu with the subject line: Fellowship, followed by your name.

The position advertised is part of a fellowship program for one or two years and the person hired will be permitted to vote in faculty meetings.  Voting rights will be commensurate with Visiting Assistant Professors.  The school anticipates paying an annual academic year base salary in the range: $70,000 to $79,999.  The number of students enrolled in each semester of the courses taught by the legal research & writing professor will be 41-50.  (cmb)
