Associate Professor of Academic Success and Bar Preparation at Southwestern

SOUTHWESTERN LAW SCHOOL in Los Angeles invites applications for full-time entry-level or experienced Visiting Associate Professor of Academic Success and Bar Preparation. The successful candidate will be eligible to apply for any future openings and may have the opportunity for additional renewals as a Visiting Associate Professor or Associate Professor of Academic Success and Bar Preparation.

AS/BP faculty work with students from pre-matriculation through the bar-study period. They teach our summer Bison Bootcamp program and serve as bar-study coaches for graduates. They teach the 1L Foundations of Law & Practice course, which instructs students about core law school skills, like reading cases and statutes, note-taking and classroom engagement, rule synthesis, outlining, and exam-taking techniques. They also teach upper-level courses, including Remedies, Multistate Bar Exam, and Cal Bar Writing. As we learn what will be covered on the new California Bar Examination, courses or course content may change.

We seek candidates who are passionate about teaching and can demonstrate success in the classroom, love working with students outside the classroom, and are willing to contribute to the campus community through committee and related service.

Students may earn their J.D. through various pathways, including two-, three-, and four-year programs and residential and a mostly asynchronous online program that starts in August 2024. The visiting faculty member will not be teaching in the online program during 2024–2025.

Founded in 1911, Southwestern is an ABA-accredited, independent law school located in the center of Los Angeles. Our mission includes educating lawyers ready to serve clients, the profession, and our society with excellence, empowering students to reach their potential, cultivating inclusion and belonging, and shaping the law and public policy through teaching, scholarship, and service.

Salary: The successful candidate will be offered a salary no less than $130,000. The salary may be adjusted for a successful candidate who has multiple years of full-time teaching experience at an ABA-approved law school.

To apply, please send your CV, professional references, research agenda, and teaching evaluations from the past five years (if applicable) via email to [email protected] and put “Faculty Application” in the email subject line. Review of applications begins immediately. Initial interviews will be held via Zoom, and callback interviews will be held in person. The ideal candidate should be available to start between June 1 and July 16, 2024.
