Salary is based on experience, and the successful candidate will receive a generous benefits package that includes health insurance and retirement savings. Additionally, the successful candidate will receive a professional development budget to enable participation at conferences and to promote meaningful scholarship. This is a unique opportunity to be on the ground floor of an innovative law school, develop a rigorous and cutting-edge program of legal education, and produce competent practitioners. Candidates should send a CV/resume, cover letter, and the candidate’s clinical vision to Associate Dean for Faculty Charles E. MacLean (CEMaclean@indianatech.edu). The Law School is particularly focused on candidates who will contribute to the diversity of the Law School’s faculty.
