Catholic University Seeks Trusts and Estates Professor

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

Catholic Law seeks to fill several faculty positions to begin in Fall 2023. We are seeking candidates for entry-level and lateral positions, tenure-track or contract, in a wide variety of subjects, including Clinical Education, Lawyering Skills, Civil Procedure, Family Law, Trusts and Estates, Criminal Law and Procedure, Evidence, Corporate and Securities Law, International Law, and Contracts and Commercial Law.

Candidates in Clinical Education may have opportunities to teach in our existing clinics but also may propose new clinical areas. We are particularly interested in clinical offerings compatible with participation by our evening students.

We are also seeking candidates whose teaching and research interests may be in any of the above subject matter areas (or others) who are also interested in participating in our University’s Institute for Latin American and Iberian Studies.

Catholic Law is a national leader in preparing students of all faiths for the practice of law and is an integral part of The Catholic University of America, the national university of the Catholic Church, located on a beautiful residential campus in the heart of the nation’s capital.

Candidates must possess a J.D. or equivalent, superior academic credentials, and relevant professional experience, such as teaching, legal practice, or judicial clerkships. The application should include a letter of interest, CV, references, sample publications, and a personal statement addressing how your research, teaching, and service would make a distinctive contribution to the mission of our University and law school and the vision of Catholic education outlined in the Apostolic Constitution on Catholic Universities, Ex Corde Ecclesiae.

Interested applicants should email their materials to the attention of Dean Stephen Payne at [email protected].

As a Catholic institution, our mission commits us to respecting the “dignity of each human person,” and to welcoming scholars who will bring a “diversity of backgrounds, religious affiliations, viewpoints, and contributions” to the law school’s vibrant intellectual community. We recognize the importance of diversity in our faculty and encourage applications from those with diverse backgrounds.

The Catholic University of America is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
