Albany Law School Seeks Trusts & Estates Professor

The following announcement is from The Faculty Lounge and was brought to my attention by Adam Hirsch.

ALBANY LAW SCHOOL, in New York’s sought-after Capital District, invites applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for several faculty positions beginning in July 2023. We value diversity and seek applicants from backgrounds that add to a community that aims to foster respect and inclusion. We welcome applications from qualified candidates across all areas and specializations, and have particular interest in candidates who specialize in the following areas:

    • Trusts & Estates
    • Contracts and Commercial Law
    • Clinical (Intimate Partner/ Domestic Violence Litigation specifically)
    • Introduction to Lawyering

As part of our unitary tenure system, tenure-track opportunities are available across all positions.


Applicants must hold a J.D. degree (or the equivalent) and should have a record of academic excellence, substantial academic or practice experience, a passion for teaching, service, and a record of, or potential for, accomplishment in scholarship. Appointment rank will be determined commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience.

Application Instructions

To apply, please submit cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the contact information for at least three references through Albany Law School's Employment Opportunities site. For more information about these opportunities, please contact Professor Ted De Barbieri at edeba@albanylaw.edu
