Western State College of Law at Westcliff University Faculty Hiring Announcement
Assistant Professor of Lawyering Skills--Academic Success Program
Western State College of Law (WSCL) at Westcliff University invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Lawyering Skills in our Academic Success Program beginning July 1, 2023. Candidates should have a record of academic excellence, experience in supporting student-centered learning, and a commitment to supporting the success of students from a diverse range of backgrounds. The Academic Success Program seeks candidates who are enthusiastic about teaching and supporting students from orientation through the bar exam. This position is designed to lead to a long-term contract that culminates, after five years of meeting standards in terms of teaching, service, and professional development, in successive five-year contracts with voting rights (on everything but promotion and tenure issues). We are particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of our faculty and welcome applications from women, underrepresented minorities, persons with disabilities, LGBTQI+ individuals, veterans, and others whose backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints would contribute to the diversity of our institution.
WSCL is located in the city of Irvine, California – close to miles of famous beaches, parks, recreation facilities and outdoor activities as well as the many museums, music venues, and diverse cultural and social experiences of greater Los Angeles.
Founded in 1966, WSCL is the oldest law school in Orange County, California, and is a fully ABA approved for-profit, private law school. Noted for small classes and personal attention from an accessible faculty focused on student success, WSCL is proud that our student body is among the most diverse in the nation, with a majority of our students from minority backgrounds. In our 50+ year history we have nearly 12,000 alumni and have had over 150 judges elevated to the bench. Our alumni are well represented across public and private sector legal practice areas.
WSCL is committed to providing workplaces and learning environments free from discrimination on the basis of any protected classification including, but not limited to race, sex, gender, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, disability, medical condition, marital status, veteran status, genetic marker or on any other basis protected by law.
Confidential review of applications will begin immediately. Applications (including a cover letter, complete CV, teaching evaluations (if available), a diversity statement addressing your contributions to our goal of creating a diverse faculty, and names/email addresses of three references) should be emailed to Professor Susan Keller, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee: email@example.com.
