Baylor Law is Recruiting Business Law Faculty!

The following opportunities come to us from Patricia Wilson at Baylor Law.  The first two positions are directly related to business law.  The last two are more litigation-oriented but may be of interest to business litigation folks.

Baylor Law is currently recruiting to fill multiple faculty positions, as described below. The starting date for each position is no later than August 1, 2023.

If you know of someone who may be interested in these positions, please encourage them to visit the Baylor Law employment opportunities webpage. Interested individuals are also welcome to contact Associate Dean Patricia Wilson by email or phone for more information.

We are particularly interested in expressions of interest from individuals who would add to the diversity of our faculty.

Please note that three of the listings are for full-time positions. However, if you or someone you know is interested in teaching as an adjunct, we regularly have adjunct positions available and are currently seeking adjunct instructors to teach transactional drafting and persuasive writing/litigation drafting. We are flexible in scheduling adjunct-taught classes, including developing a schedule that allows an adjunct to teach most classes remotely on Zoom.
