Assistant Director Position Open at Hofstra

Assistant Director of Academic Support



Hofstra University School of Law invites applicants for the position of Assistant Director of Academic Support. The Academic Support Program assists J.D. and LL.M. students in the development of the critical skills necessary to succeed in law school, on the Bar Exam, and in practice. The successful candidate will report to the Director of Academic Support and will assist in designing and implementing all aspects of Hofstra’s established Academic Support Program including:

(1) Assisting in planning and implementing first year orientation programs;

(2) Providing individual writing assistance and counseling;

(3) Identifying and assisting students who need additional academic support;

(4) Assisting in the coordination of bar exam preparation programs and events;

(5) Teaching first-year and upper-level workshops; and

(6) Assisting in the development and implementation of new services to enhance our students’ academic performance.

Minimum requirements are: a J.D.; a strong academic record; a background demonstrating a potential for excellence in academic support; an understanding of developments in legal pedagogy; strong organizational and interpersonal skills; the ability to work collaboratively with all members of the law school community; and excellent writing and speaking skills. The following are not required but would substantially enhance an application: experience in law school academic support programs or other relevant teaching experience (including experience as a teaching assistant during law school); and/or an advanced degree in education, psychology, counseling, or a related field. Law practice experience is helpful, but without teaching experience will generally not be sufficient. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

To apply for this position, please provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and writing sample to Maria Filotti, Assistant to the Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Hofstra University Law School, Hempstead, NY 11549, fax to 516-463-9554, or
