Belmont University College of Law seeks Trusts and Estates professor

The below announcement is from the Faculty Lounge and recommended to me by Adam J. Hirsch (Professor of Law at the University of San Diego School of Law).

Belmont University College of Law, in Nashville, Tennessee, invites applications from entry level and experienced candidates to fill up to three tenure-track faculty positions to begin during the 2022-2023 academic year.  We are seeking candidates across a broad range of teaching and research areas.  Particular areas of interest include health law, civil procedure, property, trusts & estates, and legal research and writing (tenure-track). 

Successful applicants must have a J.D., strong academic background, and record that indicates the promise of both teaching excellence and high scholarly achievement.  Belmont is an EOE/AA employer and welcomes applications from candidates who may add to the diversity of the College of Law.  Belmont College of Law reserves the right to exercise a preference for those candidates who support the goals and missions of the University. 

If interested, please submit a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to the Chair of the Faculty Recruitment Committee, Professor Lucian Dervan, using the recruitment committee’s email address - lawfaculty.recruitment@belmont.edu.  If you have questions about the position or Belmont University, please contact Professor Dervan at Lucian.Dervan@Belmont.edu.

Belmont University is a private, Christian university focusing on academic excellence and is located in the heart of Nashville, one of the fastest growing and most culturally rich cities in the country.  Belmont is the second largest private university in Tennessee with nearly 8,500 students. Belmont students come from every state, more than 35 countries, and all faiths. The Belmont faculty is dedicated to teaching, service, and active engagement in scholarship.  The median LSAT/GPA for the 130 students who entered the law school in August 2020 were 156 and 3.60 (75th percentile: 159 and 3.80; 25th percentile: 153 and 3.36), placing the school well within the top 100 U.S. law schools for quality of enrollees.  Belmont’s ultimate bar passage rate for 2018 and 2019 was 100%, one of only a few law schools in the country to have achieved a perfect pass rate in those years.
