Although we will accept applications until the position is filled, we will be attending the AALS recruitment conference in October and strongly encourage interested applicants to submit applications by mid-October.  Interested candidates should send a cover letter and resume. Contact:  Professor Wilhelmina Reuben-Cooke, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, University of the District of Columbia, David A.
