Stetson University College of Law seeks to hire two visiting assistant professors among several subject areas, including tax:
The program, named in honor of Dean Emeritus Bruce R. Jacob, is designed for individuals who seek the opportunity to enter academia by gaining full-time teaching experience and developing their scholarly agenda. Jacob Fellows normally will serve two years, but may, in exceptional circumstances, be extended for a third. Jacob Fellows will teach one course in their first semester, then two courses in subsequent semesters. Fellows will be eligible to apply for a research grant payable during the summer between the first and second years, and will be expected to produce at least one significant piece of scholarship. The College of Law commits to provide Jacob Fellows with considerable assistance and guidance in developing their academic careers. Among other things, Fellows will be mentored by experienced members of the tenured faculty and will receive several benefits of full-time professors, such as research assistants and a budget for professional travel. Fellows will have opportunities to become fully integrated into the life of the College of Law.
Although we will consider a wide range of subjects, we are especially interested in receiving applications from those interested in trial advocacy and other advocacy skills (appellate advocacy, ADR, interviewing, etc.), legal research and writing, legal drafting, property, corporate law, and taxation.
