Brannon P. Denning
(Cumberland), Marcia L. McCormick
(St. Louis) & Jeffrey M. Lipshaw
(Suffolk) have posted the Introduction and Table of Contents from their forthcoming book, Becoming a Law Professor: A Candidate's Guide
(ABA, 2010), on SSRN. Here is the abstract
This is the Table of Contents and the Introduction to a forthcoming book from the American Bar Association. The authors provide detailed advice and resources for aspiring law professors, including a description of the categories of law faculty (and what they do), possible paths to careers in the legal academy, and "how to" guides for filling out the AALS's Faculty Appointments Register, interviewing at the Faculty Recruitment Conference (the "meat market"), issues for non-traditional candidates, dealing with callbacks and job offers, and getting ready for the first semester on the job.
