The deadline is tomorrow to apply for the visiting legal writing job next fall semester at Gonzaga University School of Law in Spokane, Washington. The visitor will teach two sections of LR&W I with approximately 14 students in each section, and one section of LR&W III with approximately 18 students. Gonzaga has a required four-semester LR&W Program. Each semester is two credits. The LR&W I course introduces students to legal analysis, research, and writing through a series of closed- and open- universe syntheses and increasingly complex internal office memoranda. The LR&W III class introduces students to persuasive writing through a series of litigation-based documents including a demand letter, simple motion for summary judgment and supporting documents, and appellate brief.
The law school is strongly committed to diversifying its faculty and furthering Gonzaga’s mission as a Jesuit, Catholic, and humanistic institution. To apply, you need to send a cover letter, CV, and three references to: Professor Cheryl Ann Beckett, firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. The position advertised is only for one semester, to cover a sabbatical.
2. The professor hired will not be permitted to vote in faculty meetings.
3. The school anticipates paying an annual base salary equivalent in the range of less than $50,000 to $69,999. Since this is a one-semester visiting position, it will only be a half-year salary.
4. The number of students enrolled in each semester of the courses taught by the legal research & writing professor will be 46 - 50.
