Law Practice Visiting Assistant Professorships: 2021 - 2022
Boston College Law School is seeking two one-year Visiting Assistant Professors to teach in its first-year Law Practice course for the 2021-2022 academic year. The Law Practice course introduces students to the work of a lawyer through legal problem-solving in a simulated law practice setting. In the fall semester, Law Practice 1 integrates instruction in legal analysis, research, and writing to prepare students to competently perform these tasks, which are essential to the practice of law. In the spring semester, Law Practice 2 focuses on further development of legal writing skills, primarily in the advocacy context, on more complex legal problems. In both semesters, teaching is accomplished through classroom instruction, discussion, simulations, and intensive individual feedback—in person and through written and audio comments—on student work. Each visiting assistant professor will teach one section of approximately 45 students who they will have for both semesters: Law Practice 1 in the fall and Law Practice 2 in the spring.
Applicants must have a J.D. from an accredited law school, at least three years of legal practice experience, and excellent writing and analytical skills. Prior experience teaching legal writing is preferred. To apply, please submit a cover letter, résumé, and prior teaching evaluations, if any, to Professor Daniel Lyons at Daniel.firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, July 23, 2021.
