Western State University College of Law has just given the green light for applications for two full-time legal writing faculty positions for the 2010-2011 academic year. The new legal writing faculty members will each teach two sections (about 40 students total) of the first-year legal writing and research classes each semester. Along with the Director and Assistant Director, the new faculty members will collaborate in the curricular design and creative process involved in putting together the Professional Skills program, including developing course materials and writing problems. The positions may also involve oversight of the Honors Moot Court Team or the Externship Program.
Candidates must have a J.D. degree, strong academic credentials, excellent analytical, writing, and research skills, superior interpersonal skills, and a commitment to teaching legal research and writing. A minimum of two years of legal practice and at least one year of teaching experience is highly preferred.
The position offers an initial one-year contract, after which the faculty member is eligible for successive renewable contracts. The salary will be between $70,000 - $80,000, depending on experience.
To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, and a list of three references to Lori A. Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will begin reviewing applications immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. The application deadline is June 30, 2010.
