If you teach at another law school and you're interested in applying for the visiting position teaching legal writing at the University of Oregon School of Law this fall, you only have until March 15 to get your application in. (If you don't currently teach at another law school, the deadline doesn't apply, but then you take your chances that the position may be filled shortly after that.) Their classes begin on August 22, but the contract would begin on August 1 to allow for planning and coordination.
Applicants for this position should have a strong record of academic achievement; excellent skills in legal writing, research, and oral communication; a J.D. or its equivalent; and at least two years of post-law school legal experience. Applicants also should have either teaching experience or a demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching. Send you send application (or questions) to Suzanne Rowe at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should include a letter of interest, a CV, a list of three references, and (for recent graduates) a law school transcript.
1. The position advertised is a one-semester visiting appointment.
2. The professor hired will not be permitted to vote in faculty meetings.
3. The school anticipates paying an annual academic year base salary in the range $50,000 - $69,999 (prorated for the semester).
4. The number of students enrolled in each semester of the courses taught by the legal research & writing professor will be 36 - 50.
