CUNY SCHOOL OF LAW: "LAW IN THE SERVICE OF HUMAN NEEDS"
CUNY School of Law is a national leader in progressive legal education: we are ranked first in the country for public interest law and third in the county for clinical programs, and we are one of the most diverse law schools in the nation.
Our mission at CUNY School of Law is two-fold: training public interest attorneys to practice law in the service of human needs; and providing access to the profession for members of historically underrepresented communities. The Law School advances that mission though an innovative curriculum that brings together the highest caliber of clinical training with traditional doctrinal legal education to train lawyers prepared to serve the public interest. The basic premise of the law school's program is that theory and abstract knowledge cannot be separated from practice, practical skill, professional experience and the social, cultural, and economic context of law. The curriculum therefore integrates practical experience, professional responsibility, and lawyering skills with doctrinal study at every level.
Successful candidates will have:
a) J.D., L.LB., or Ph.D in a law-related discipline;
b) admission to law practice;
c) social justice lawyering experience;
d) a demonstrated commitment to the mission of CUNY School of Law;
e) availability and willingness to teach in the day and evening programs on a rotating basis;
f) availability and willingness to teach the first-year Lawyering course on a rotating basis (experience teaching legal writing preferred);
g) commitment to scholarly engagement (established scholarly record preferred);
(a) a demonstrated commitment to excellent teaching (ability to teach in both a classroom and clinical setting preferred); and
(b) demonstrated success as a faculty member, including the ability to collaborate with others and share responsibility for committee and department assignments.
CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs. We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development.
