University of Tennessee College of Law Seeks Estate Planning Professor

The following is from a posting on The Faculty Lounge originally posted by Tim Zinnecker and brought to my attention by Adam J. Hirsch (Professor of Law, University of San Diego School of Law):

THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE COLLEGE OF LAW invites applications from both entry-level and lateral candidates for two full-time, tenure-track or tenured faculty positions to commence in the Fall Semester 2022. The College is looking for candidates who will fill a range of curricular needs. We are particularly interested in the subject area of business law, including business associations and contracts. Other areas of interest include corporate and regulatory compliance, education law, environmental law, estate planning, health law, immigration law, legal writing, and property. We also seek candidates who integrate cutting-edge legal issues into their courses or are interested in helping us expand our offerings in areas like technology, cybersecurity, e-discovery, and data privacy. We welcome applications from candidates who incorporate practical lawyering skills into their courses.

A J.D. or equivalent law degree is required. Successful applicants must have a strong academic background. Significant professional experience is desirable. Candidates also must have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service.

In furtherance of the University’s and the College’s fundamental commitment to diversity among our faculty, student body, and staff, we strongly encourage applications from those who would bring increased diversity to our faculty, curriculum, and programs.

The committee will review applications submitted through the AALS Faculty Appointments Register (FAR) and will also consider applications submitted outside of the FAR process. Candidates who are not applying through the FAR may submit their application materials directly to Michelle Kwon, Chair of the Faculty Appointments Committee, by emailing them to lawfacultyhiring@utk.edu. Please include a letter of interest, including the subjects the candidate is interested in teaching, and a CV with the names and contact information of three references. Applications from candidates not participating in the FAR will have the best chance of full consideration if they are received by September 1, 2021.

The University of Tennessee is an EEO/AA/Title VI/Title IX/Section 504/ADA/ADEA institution in the provision of its education and employment programs and services. All qualified applicants will receive equal consideration for employment and admission without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran status, and parental status.
