The University of California, Irvine School of Law invites applications for tenured/tenure-track faculty positions and for a full-time clinical position with security of employment or the potential for security employment, all with a start date of July 1, 2023. One tenured/tenure-track position is for a faculty member whose research, teaching, and service contribute to UCI’s Black Thriving Initiative (BTI) and the Infrastructure Equity Cluster Hiring Initiative. “Infrastructure equity” is meant broadly to include the promotion of justice in a wide range of public policy areas, including environmental, transportation, water and other natural resources, land use, energy, communication, and health care law. UCI Law also invites applications for tenured/tenure-track positions, in all subject areas, with particular interest in candidates who teach and write in business law, private law, procedural law, and public law. The clinical position is for a faculty member who will either create a new clinic or co-teach in one of the law school’s existing clinics.
