The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law is hiring a visiting associate professor in Property, Real Estate Transactions, Fair and Affordable Housing, and related subjects which will begin in Fall 2021, with the further opportunity to apply for a tenure-track position beginning in Fall 2022.

UMKC School of Law has a tradition of strong scholarship and engagement in the field of property, as well as outstanding training for students as part of our J.D. and LL.M. emphasis in Urban, Land Use, and Environmental Law. The School of Law boasts an extraordinary relationship with the local bench, bar, and civic community, providing opportunities for research and service in cutting-edge entrepreneurial urban development. Service to the community is supported through two clinics focused on property law: an abandoned housing clinic and a tenant eviction defense initiative.
UMKC is the urban law school of the University of Missouri System and is located on a beautifully landscaped campus in the Country Club Plaza area of Kansas City, Missouri. It is the only law school in a diverse and vibrant metropolitan area of more than two million people and offers courses leading to J.D. or LL.M. degrees for approximately 450 students.
