 Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (‘AJMLS’) is looking for a motivated individual to join the school in a full-time, non-tenure track position as an Academic Support Professional (‘ASP’). The ASP is an important team member in the Office of Academic Achievement and Bar Success (‘AABS’) who works with students and alumni to enhance, develop, and expound upon the critical skills associated with success in law school and on the bar exam. AABS offers instruction and assistance in a variety of formats, including one-on-one counseling, conducting workshops, teaching required bar success courses, and developing specialized course offerings available to all enrolled students and graduates preparing for the bar exam. The ASP position may have some weekend responsibilities but generally is a Monday-Friday position. 

This is a full-time, contract position, with opportunities for advancement and renewal, after an initial evaluation period. This is an in-person role, located in AJMLS’s brand-new location in downtown Atlanta.

Preference will be given to applicants who have experience teaching in academic success or legal writing programs and to those who demonstrate a commitment to long-term student success. 

The Academic Support Professional will be responsible for, but not limited to the following: 

  • • Assisting with implementation and management of all AABS programming focused on preparing students for the bar exam 
  • • Teaching courses, academic workshops, and labs to students with the focus of strengthening the academic skills of critical reading, briefing, outlining, and analysis, and content related to the mission of the department

  • • Providing learning strategies and techniques to enhance and leverage the academic skills that underline law school success 
  • • Providing written and formative feedback to students on practice problems and exams
