Assistant Professor of Teaching at Memphis

Memphis is currently hiring an Assistant Professor of Teaching (non-tenure track) to teach academic success and bar support courses and work within our programs. Please see the job description below. They are also hiring for a legal writing professor. I have included the link for that position below. 

Please submit applications via the links below. The primary contact for potential candidates for both positions is the Chair of the Faculty Recruitment Committee, Peter Letsou ([email protected]). 

Assistant Professor of Teaching - Academic Success and Bar Support: 

The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law invites applications for a professor to offer programming and teach courses related to Academic Success and Bar Support. The professor will join a collaborative environment and work closely with the Director of Academic Success, the Director of Bar Preparation, and others teaching in the Academic Success and Bar Preparation Program to enhance the associated programming and to develop and/or enhance the curricula for Academic Success and Bar Preparation courses. The professor will teach Academic Success courses and Bar Exam Preparation courses and offer academic advising.

The salary will be $85,000 for a twelve-month appointment. Tennessee has no income tax, and in several different surveys, Memphis consistently ranks among the top ten U.S. cities for low costs of living.

The Law School encourages expressions of interest from candidates whose backgrounds will contribute to the diversity of the faculty.

The position is non tenure-track.

Candidates should have an outstanding academic record and excellent communication skills. Candidates must have a J.D. and bar admission. Candidates should have a strong desire to teach and provide support to first-year and upper-level law students, as well as a desire and ability to work collegially in a collaborative environment. Teaching experience is desired but not required.
