The California Western School of Law is soliciting applications for these positions and welcomes applications from individuals who would contribute to the vibrancy and diversity of the law faculty.
From the hiring committee:
California Western School of Law (CWSL) is seeking applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for two tenured or tenure-track positions and one to begin on or about August 1, 2021. We are looking for candidates with strong academic backgrounds, a commitment to excellence in teaching, and demonstrated potential to be productive scholars. We are especially interested in candidates with a strong desire to teach Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, or Contracts.
We are also seeking applications for a full-time Legal Skills Professor. The initial appointment is for two years, with possible re-appointment and long-term non-tenure-track status. Responsibilities include teaching two sections of Legal Skills I (objective analysis, writing, and research) in the fall and two sections of Legal Skills II (persuasive writing and oral advocacy) in the spring. Legal Skills Professors participate in the faculty governance of the law school.
Application materials should include a cover letter, C.V., research agenda, and a diversity statement that addresses how you will contribute to CWSL’s goal of creating a diverse faculty. Please direct application materials and questions to the chair of the Appointments Committee, Professor Ken Klein, at email@example.com.
