STETSON UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LAW seeks to fill up to two entry-level tenure-track positions, with a possibility of a third visiting position. While our needs are flexible, we have a particular focus for entry-level positions relating to our newly-created Business Law Concentration, especially in areas of Business Entities, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Securities Regulation, as well as in the areas of Intellectual Property (emphasis on Patent Law) and Professional Responsibility. We may also have a need for a visitor in Constitutional Law or Legal Writing. Other doctrinal areas may be considered depending on our developing institutional needs.
