Elon University School of Law invites applications for tenure-track or visiting faculty positions for appointments to begin in August 2011. Our principal needs are in the areas of property law and/or wills, trusts, and estates. We may also attempt this year to fill needs in environmental law, real estate transactions and finance, transactional skills, or legislation and legislative drafting, as well as other areas. We will consider both entry-level and junior or senior lateral candidates for these positions, though there is a preference for candidates who have at least some teaching experience and who have demonstrated strong potential for scholarship. We will also consider senior lateral candidates who teach in a wider range of subject areas than those listed.
The law school, now in its fifth year, is provisionally approved, and plans to seek full ABA approval this year and AALS membership at the earliest opportunity. Elon Law is located in downtown Greensboro, close to Federal and state courts, city and county government buildings, and a variety of cultural and historic attractions. The main campus of Elon University is one-half hour to the east. More than 40,000 college and university students in Greensboro create a vibrant intellectual and cultural community.
Elon University is an equal employment opportunity employer, and the law school actively seeks a diverse faculty. Interested applicants should send a resume, cover letter, and any supporting documents to the chair of the faculty recruitment committee - Professor Howard Katz, Elon University School of Law, 201 North Greene Street, Greensboro, North Carolina 27401 - or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
