Texas Wesleyan has promoted the following faculty members to the professional-skills-tenure track beginning in fall 2011: Mark Burge, Dennis Kelly, John Murphy, Tanya Pierce, and Neil Sobol. (In the fall, the school also expects to post positions for at least two additional professional-skills -tenure track slots, to start in the fall of 2012. We'll report the details here when available.)
The University of Michigan Law School faculty voted to authorize long-term, ABA Standard 405(c), "clinical tenure-track" contracts for Legal Practice Program legal writing faculty. LP faculty under such contracts will also receive faculty voting rights, except on tenure matters. (Michigan will also be hiring this fall for a position under the new standards starting in 2012, and we'll post details here when they're available.)
IU-Indy has announced that Allison Martin has been promoted to Clinical Professor of Law.
And effective August 1, there will be a new Legal Writing Director at Tennessee - Michael Higdon.
