UNLV Announces Terrill Pollman Visiting Professorship

Terrill PollmanThe University of Nevada at Las Vegas William S. Boyd School of Law recently voted to award Professor Emerita status to Terrill Pollman, one of the founding faculty at UNLV, and to name a visiting professorship in her honor.

UNLV expects to fill the Pollman Visiting Professorship for one-year terms during most academic years, beginning with the 2020-2021 year.

The Pollman Visitor will be expected to teach two sections of a first-year Lawyering Process (LP) course each semester. LP courses typically have 18 students, and never more than 20. The Pollman Visitorship is entirely unrelated to hiring; it is not meant to be a "look see" visitorship. The school is particularly interested in selecting faculty who are excellent teachers of legal writing.

The fall semester begins on August 24, 2020, and the last day of classes is Wednesday, November 25 (the day before Thanksgiving, which is late again in 2020). The spring semester begins on Tuesday, January 19 (the day after MLK day), and Spring Break is March 15-19. The last day of classes is Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
If you are interested in applying, UNLV would love to hear from you by Valentine’s Day. Please send a current C.V. to Associate Dean Sara Gordon at Please include (1) names and contact information for three references, and (2) recent course evaluations or other evidence of excellence in teaching.

If you have questions about the visitorship or about life in Las Vegas, you may contact Sara Gordon or any other members of the UNLV Legal Writing Faculty:;;;;
