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.

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.

Campbell University seeks T&E Visitor

This post is from The Faculty Lounge:

CAMPBELL UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for at least two, and potentially three, full-time, temporary Visiting Faculty Positions for the 2021-2022 academic year. This is a temporary, two semester, non-tenure track appointment.  The Visitor will either teach corporate law, property law, or wills, trust and estates with related upper-level courses associated with these core subjects.  All applicants should have excellent academic credentials and outstanding teaching reviews. We welcome applications from candidates whose background will contribute to excellence through institutional diversity. Cover letters must explain how the candidate is able and willing and able to support each of the five distinctives set forth below.

Located in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, Campbell University School of Law is a highly demanding, purposely small community of faculty and students whose aim, guided by transcendent values, is to develop lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, and who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others and to create a more just society.  To that end, the law school has adopted the following distinctives: (1) we offer an academic program that is highly demanding; (2) we bring together the theoretical and practical to produce thoughtful and talented lawyers; (3) we utilize the talents of a faculty that is profoundly committed to students and teaching; (4) we view the practice of law as a calling to serve others; and (5) we offer a Christian perspective on law and justice.
