The Washington and Lee University School of Law seeks to hire a faculty member with research and teaching interests in the fields of corporate law, securities regulation, and/or commercial law. Our school has a long history of outstanding scholarship and teaching in these areas, and we are excited to advance our trajectory with a new hire. In addition to this subject-matter focus, we look for an individual who will embrace and meaningfully contribute to our close-knit, collegial, and intellectually vibrant community.
We warmly invite applications for a position as Assistant or Associate Professor of Law beginning July 1, 2019, and we are particularly focused on lateral candidates with between 2-4 years of experience. In all cases, candidates for the position must demonstrate a record of excellence in both teaching and scholarship.
