The University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, is accepting applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in the area of legal research and writing.
Each legal writing professor teaches approximately 35 first-year students, divided into 2 sections, during the fall and spring semesters. They teach predictive writing in the fall (graded, 3 credit hour class) and persuasive writing in the spring semester (graded, 2 credit hour class). They follow uniform assignment deadlines and assignment length. Beyond these requirements, however, each professor has full authority over how his or her class is taught. Basic legal research instruction is integrated into the first year curriculum. There will also be an opportunity to teach a small section of upper-level legal writing or another class of interest, during the spring semesters.
