SOUTHWESTERN LAW SCHOOL in Los Angeles invites applications for multiple full-time entry-level and lateral tenure/tenure-track positions to begin in Summer 2024. Our primary curricular needs include Business Associations, Civil Procedure, Criminal Law/Criminal Procedure, Evidence, and Property.
When selecting candidates to interview, we also will consider whether they might also contribute in the following areas: Administrative Law, Contracts, Copyright, Business/Corporate/Entrepreneurship electives; Cyberlaw/Technology/Privacy, Entertainment Law, and Wills & Trusts.
We seek candidates who are passionate about teaching and can demonstrate success in the classroom, love working with students outside the classroom, are committed to producing high-quality scholarship appropriate for their field, and are willing to contribute to the campus community through committee and related service.
Subject to approval from the ABA, we plan to launch a mostly asynchronous online J.D. program (with full-time and part-time options) in Fall 2024, and we hope many faculty we will hire in the coming years will teach in that program.
Founded in 1911, Southwestern is an ABA-accredited, independent law school located in the center of Los Angeles. Our mission includes educating lawyers ready to serve clients, the profession, and our society with excellence, empowering students to reach their potential, cultivating inclusion and belonging, and shaping the law and public policy through teaching, scholarship, and service.
To apply, please send your CV, professional references, research agenda, and preferred areas of teaching via email to [email protected] and put “Faculty Application” in the email subject line. Review of applications will begin in mid-August. Initial interviews will be held via Zoom, and callback interviews will be held in person.
