Campbell University's Norman A. Wiggins School of Law Seeks New Faculty to Teach Business and Commercial Law
I recently learned that it's always hump day at Campbell University
Campbell University School of Law invites individuals to apply for up to two open faculty positions. These tenured or tenure-track faculty positions are nine-month appointments that will begin in August 2022 at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or full Professor. We are seeking candidates to teach required courses in (1) business organizations as well as (2) commercial law (including sales law), and/or contracts. We prefer candidates who are also able to teach upper-level elective courses in business/transactional/planning. We are also interested in candidates who, in addition to teaching one or more of the required courses, are able to teach family law, health-care law, or professional responsibility. Candidates should exhibit strong teaching skills and be committed to maintaining an ongoing research effort. A commitment to academic excellence and the ability to work effectively and collegially with faculty, students, and colleagues is expected. Successful candidates should expect their annual course packages to include one or more required, large-enrollment courses. All applicants should have excellent academic credentials and outstanding teaching reviews. We welcome applications from candidates whose background will contribute to excellence through institutional diversity. Cover letters must explain how the candidate is able and willing and able to support each of the five distinctives set forth below. Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience.
Campbell University is informed and inspired by its Baptist heritage and three basic theological and biblical presuppositions: learning is appointed and conserved by God as essential to the fulfillment of human destiny; in Christ all things consist and find ultimate unity; and the Kingdom of God in this world is rooted and grounded in Christian community. Campbell University embraces the conviction that there is no conflict between the life of faith and the life of inquiry.
Located in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, Campbell University School of Law is a highly demanding, purposely small community of faculty and students whose aim, guided by transcendent values, is to develop lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, and who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others and to create a more just society. To that end, the law school has adopted the following distinctives: (1) we offer an academic program that is highly demanding; (2) we bring together the theoretical and practical to produce thoughtful and talented lawyers; (3) we utilize the talents of a faculty that is profoundly committed to students and teaching; (4) we view the practice of law as a calling to serve others; and (5) we offer a Christian perspective on law and justice.
