Adjunct Critical Legal Analysis Professors Needed for Rutgers Law School
Rutgers Law School, located in both Camden and Newark New Jersey, invites applications for Critical Legal Analysis (CLA), with openings in both locations for immediate needs in Fall, 2021 and Spring, 2022. We encourage applications and inquiries from candidates who contribute to the diversity of our faculty, including, but not limited to, people of color, people living with disabilities, and members of the LGBT community.
The primary teaching responsibility of the CLA Adjunct faculty position is to improve students’ ability to deconstruct legal rules, to explain and evaluate the significance of facts, to thoroughly support conclusions of law, and to effectively organize content. These skills are critical in applying law to the hypothetical questions typical of both law school and bar exams. The hands-on learning methodology used in the course will include in-class analytical and writing work in both individual and group settings. CLA helps students develop their legal reasoning and analysis skills and improve their ability to communicate clear and well supported reasoning though legal writing.
The instructor will present course material during the assigned course times, hold oﬃce hours, administer exams, assign grades and coordinate any other requirements related to course instruction. Candidates must have a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school and demonstrated ability in analysis, writing and lawyering skills.
Please submit your application by 7/6/21 if possible and indicate your preferences for location and for teaching day or evening sections.
We also seek part-time lecturers for Fall, 2021 to teach Legal Analysis, Writing & Research Skills and for the Spring, 2021 semester to teach in various disciplines.

As the law school for a top public university, Rutgers Law School is committed to the highest standards of teaching, scholarship, and service to its host communities, the state of New Jersey, and the nation.
