Torts Visitor Opening at FIU

From Howard Wasserman (FIU) comes news of a torts visitor opening at Florida International University in Miami:


Florida International University College of Law invites

applications from candidates for one or more visiting

faculty positions beginning in Fall 2010. Areas of

curricular preference include Property, Criminal Law,

Torts, Environmental Law, And Trusts and Estates. Visits

could be for either the fall or spring semester or for the

full year.



Part of Miami's public research university, the College of

Law is a dynamic urban law school with approximately 600

students. FIU College of Law was established in 2000,

enrolled its first class in 2002, and currently has 30

full-time faculty members. In the spring of 2007, the FIU

College of Law moved into a new state-of-the-art building

at the heart of the main university campus. Over the past

two years, our FIU on-campus community has been enriched

through the addition of a new medical school and the

construction of the Frost Art Museum.


The FIU community and the College of Law are strongly

committed to the pursuit of excellence and the goal of

ensuring opportunities within the legal profession for
