The University of San Francisco School of Law seeks candidates for the position of Co-Director of ABES (Academic Foundations) and Assistant Professor to commence summer 2020.
The Academic and Bar Exam Success (ABES) Program at USF Law School offers comprehensive support services to help all students succeed in law school, in legal practice, and on the bar exam. The program has two Directors, one that focuses on academic foundations, especially in the first and second years of law school and with an emphasis on building foundational academic and legal skills, and the other that focuses on bar success. The two Directors work closely together to develop and implement the overall ABES program.
Reporting to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Co-Director of ABES (Academic Foundations) will be responsible for designing and implementing a 1L and 2L curriculum for students to develop strong academic and legal skills (including teaching workshops and a course), meeting individually with students who are in academic difficulty and working with them toward academic success, and working together with the other Co-Director of ABES (Bar Success) to link legal and academic skills to bar exam success.
Applicants should demonstrate a record of strong writing and reading comprehension skills, a record or aptitude for programmatic planning and assessment, and a record or aptitude for working closely with a diverse range of students to advance their skills and success.
Applications from minority group members and individuals whose background or interests will enhance the school's diversity are highly encouraged.
This is a full-time, non-tenure track position.
