California Western School of Law (CWSL) is seeking applications from lateral candidates for two tenure or tenure-track positions to begin on or about August 1, 2023. We are looking for candidates with strong academic backgrounds, a commitment to excellence in teaching, and demonstrated potential to be productive scholars. We specifically are interested in an experienced instructor to teach Contracts and Civil Procedure beginning in Academic Year 2023-24, and particularly welcome applications from individuals who would contribute to the vibrancy and diversity of our faculty.
Established in 1924, CWSL is an ABA accredited and AALS member, non-profit law school, and has the distinction of being San Diego’s oldest law school. At CWSL we pride ourselves on the diversity of our student body. This year, around 50% of our incoming students are from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We are committed to having a faculty that reflects our student body and our community. CWSL continues to rethink the status quo in legal education – balancing a rigorous practical education with cutting edge scholarship and community service. As a result, our graduates have a reputation for being uniquely practice-ready.
CWSL is located in downtown San Diego, literally overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A city of breathtaking beauty, we have perfect weather, miles of beaches, and nearby mountains. We are a family-friendly, diverse city with small city traffic and walkable neighborhoods.
Application materials should include a cover letter, C.V., research agenda, and a diversity statement that addresses how you will contribute to CWSL’s goal of creating a diverse faculty. Please direct application materials and questions to the chair of the Lateral Appointments Committee, Professor Erin Sheley, at the following email address: email@example.com. We will begin considering applications on August 12 2022.
