TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW seeks several faculty candidates for tenure-track or tenured positions
TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW seeks to advance its academic programs and robust commitment to scholarly inquiry by recruiting multiple faculty candidates for tenure-track or tenured positions.
Since integrating with Texas A&M five years ago, the law school has sustained a remarkable upward trajectory by dramatically increasing entering class credentials; adding nine new clinics and six global field study destinations; increasing the depth and breadth of our career services, student services, academic support, and admissions functions; and hiring twenty-six new faculty members. To maintain and accelerate that trajectory, the School of Law aims to augment and build distinctive pillars of excellence in a number of fields in the coming years.
Beyond nationally prominent programs in Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property, and Natural Resources Law, relevant areas of emerging strength include Immigration Law, National Security Law, International Law, and Real Property Law. As part of a multi-year appointments strategy, the School of Law aims to enhance its strength in discrete areas within these fields, including online dispute resolution, privacy, cybersecurity, climate change, and refugee/asylum law. Our Faculty Appointments Committee will be especially interested in candidates whose profiles offer synergies with core curricular areas of interest, including administrative law, criminal law, family law, and tort law.
While the School of Law welcomes expressions of interest in any of these areas, it is particularly interested in recruiting visionary leaders and outstanding scholars – of any research methodology – who can help to contribute to creating a new, path-breaking sphere of excellence in Health Law, Regulation, and Policy. In conjunction with Texas A&M University’s efforts to develop cutting-edge programs at the intersection of health care, technology, and business, relevant law school faculty will have the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary scholarship, teaching, and policy work at the highest level.
