Assistant Dean for Graduate & Experiential Education
Founded in 2015 by His Majesty the King, the Jigme Singye Wangchuck School of Law (JSW Law) is the first and only law school in the Kingdom of Bhutan. JSW Law is a small law school, with approximately 20 full‐time faculty and between 100‐125 undergraduate law students. Pursuant to its Royal Charter, JSW Law is dedicated to educating Bhutan’s future legal professionals, producing high‐quality research in law and allied fields, and providing service to the community and the nation.
JSW Law seeks an experienced legal academician to join its faculty on a three‐year contract (non‐tenure track) basis to design and roll out the law school’s nascent Master of Laws (LL.M.) programs and to oversee the compulsory tenth‐semester internship program. The ideal candidate will also co‐teach the law school’s first‐year sequence in legal writing and research and the upper-class courses in Moot Court and Oral Advocacy.
The expected start date for this position is July 1, 2022. The candidate would be required to relocate on a permanent basis to Bhutan.
