In UST Law's brief ten-year history, we have been able to hire tenured or chaired faculty from nationally regarded law schools such as Notre Dame, Minnesota, Illinois, Baylor, Pepperdine, and St. John’s. Fully accredited in the shortest time possible, the school occupies a new $35 million building in downtown Minneapolis that an ABA site evaluation team called "quite simply breathtaking." UST Law has raised more than $90 million to date (toward a goal of more than $135 million), allowing it to offer competitive salaries to faculty and staff, generous financial aid to students, and substantial loan repayment assistance to future graduates in public interest jobs. We are among the top 25 law schools in the nation in endowment per student. By various measures of scholarly accomplishment and prominence, our faculty consistently ranks in or near the top quarter of law schools in the country.
UST Law's success stems in large part from its unique mission to "integrate faith and reason in the search for truth through a focus on morality and social justice." As a Catholic school, UST Law draws on the wisdom of faith and law, with a special focus on ethics, professionalism, and servant leadership. ... Applications should be sent to Professor Gregory Sisk. Applications will be received in confidence. We urge candidates interested in applying to us to include in their application a description of how they could contribute to various aspects of UST Law's distinctive mission.

For over fifty years,the NYU Acting Assistant Professor of Tax Law (“Tax AAP”) program has launched the careers of dozens of tax academics. ... Tax AAPs show promise as legal scholars and have a strong interest in teaching. They serve on a full-time, non-tenure track basis at the Law School for two academic years. At the start of their second year, Tax AAPs are expected to seek a tenure-track position on the law school academic job market.
While in residence at the Law School, Tax AAPs devote a substantial amount of time to their scholarship and begin to develop their research agendas. Tax AAPs teach one or two courses in the Graduate Tax Program each semester. Each Tax AAP also either serves an Assistant Editor of the Tax Law Review, the nation’s top tax policy journal, or works with the International Tax Program, the leading graduate tax program for non-U.S. lawyers.
A J.D. degree, a strong record of academic achievement, and an interest in an academic career are required. Tax AAPs will be selected based on their potential scholarly and teaching abilities. To be considered for the Tax AAP program for the 2012-13 academic year, please submit the following items electronically to Professor Deborah Schenk, chairman of the Acting Assistant Professors of Tax Law Committee: (1) cover e-mail explaining interest in the Tax AAP Program; (2) curriculum vitae; and (3) copies of law school transcripts (J.D. and, if applicable, LL.M.).
Applications for the 2012-13 academic year will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting November 1, 2011.
