Business Clinicians Sought at Cornell Law

I found the message below in my "in box" yesterday from Celia Bigoness and Beth Lyon at Cornell Law and thought it important to share the opportunities they reference with the broader BLPB community.  I hope it is useful to those of you considering long-term non-tenure-track roles in the entrepreneurial law space.

I'm happy to share that Cornell Law School is seeking two new clinicians to work in our Entrepreneurship Law Clinic (ELC) and help us create the law school's first dual-campus clinic. Expanding the ELC, made possible by a generous gift creating the Blassberg-Rice Center for Entrepreneurship Law, represents Cornell Law School's commitment to community-engaged learning and partnerships throughout New York state.

We are searching for one clinician to be based at our Ithaca campus, and one clinician to be based at the Co at Cornell Law:rnell Tech campus in New York City. Both new hires will have a full-time teaching responsibility in the ELC, working alongside the ELC's founder and the director of the new center, Celia Bigoness. Both appointments will be to the long-term, presumptively renewable, contract track for permanent clinical faculty at Cornell Law School, with voting rights and academic leave rights consistent with the other permanent clinicians.

The full job posting is linked here . . . .

The application deadline is October 15, but we encourage candidates to apply early.

If you have any questions, please contact Celia ([email protected]) and our Associate Dean for Experiential Education, Beth Lyon ([email protected]).

All the best,

Beth and Celia

Southwestern Law Faculty Position Announcement


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.
