Temple University School of Law is seeking to hire a Practice Professor of Law (Legal Research & Writing for International LLM Students) and Director, International Writing Center
Minimum Education and Experience:
JD required, additional degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages preferred, as well as demonstrated scholarly potential and experience teaching legal research and writing to international Master of Laws (LLM) students.
The primary teaching responsibility of the professor is Legal Research & Writing (LRW) for international LLM students (fall and summer semesters), LRW II for international students (spring semester), and, as needed, guided research. The professor will teach a section of 20-30 international LLM students and hire adjuncts as needed for additional sections.
