Here are the details:
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF PRACTICE
The University of Cincinnati College of Law invites applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for the position of Assistant Professor of Practice. The College wishes to achieve two major goals with this new position. First, we would like this professor to develop courses focused on skills that would complement our current skills curriculum that now focuses primarily on a litigation context. Therefore, the professor should have a background primarily in an area other than litigation. The second goal is for the new professor to design skills courses that would be attractive to and could be taken by a large number of students.
We would welcome applications from candidates with strong skills in a nonlitigation legal context. For example, we would welcome applicants with a business practice background who could teach skills relevant to such topics as contracts, accounting and financial concepts, drafting legal documents, and moving a deal from negotiations and due diligence to drafting and closing. We would also welcome applications from candidates with a strong background in small firm practice who could teach skills relevant to such topics as wills, probate, small contracts, real estate transactions, family law, and simple criminal matters.
The successful candidate will teach one or more sections of our Client Counseling Class, required in the second year, and depending on his or her skills and interests, may teach other skills classes, supervise cocurricular activities, and assist with our CLE offerings. Candidates must have strong academic records; possess solid legal practice skills; and have significant practice experience in a legal context other than litigation. JD is required. Teaching experience is desired but not required. The position offers a competitive salary, flexible hours, and an excellent benefits package. Appointment will be made to the College's non-tenure track faculty with the possibility of long-term contracts. We will begin reviewing resumes immediately, and the search will remain open until the position is filled. To apply, go to www.jobsatuc.com and apply to position number 210UC1980. Minorities and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
