The Mercer University School of Law invites applications from entry-level and pre-tenure lateral candidates (Assistant and Associate rank) for three tenure-track faculty positions to begin in the Fall of 2024. They welcome applications from candidates in all subject matter areas, especially commercial law, and legal writing. They also welcome candidates who are truly entry-level, with no prior law teaching experience, but who show significant promise for excellence in teaching and scholarship.
Founded in 1873, Mercer University School of Law has a long tradition of producing lawyers who are ready to practice and committed to service. The School has earned a reputation as an excellent provider of legal education with an intense focus on student and faculty interaction. With an enrollment of about 375 students, Mercer Law School is one of 12 schools and colleges of Mercer University, which has been listed among the top institutions of higher education in the nation. The School of Law is nationally recognized for its exceptional programs in legal writing, advocacy (moot court and mock trial), public service, and professionalism and ethics.
The School of Law is located in Macon, Georgia, a city of approximately 156,000.
