Rutgers Law School invites applications from entry level and junior lateral candidates for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor of Law at the Newark campus starting in the 2021-22 academic year. We are especially interested in candidates with demonstrated interest in one or more of the following areas: Property, Tax, Intellectual Property, Nonprofit Organizations, and Trusts & Estates.
Rutgers Law School also seeks candidates for a full-time faculty position teaching in the Legal Analysis, Writing & Research Skills (LAWRS) program at the rank of Assistant Clinical Professor at its Newark location. The primary teaching responsibility of this faculty position is the year-long five-credit first-year LAWRS course. The course integrates legal analysis, research, advocacy, and communication skills, with client representation. In addition to teaching in the LAWRS program, the Assistant Clinical Professor is also expected to engage in scholarship in a chosen area of inquiry and to participate in service activities. The clinical-professor track at Rutgers Law School leads to long-term (five-year) presumptively renewable contracts with the protections of ABA Accreditation Standard 405. New clinical professors receive an initial three-year contract, with the opportunity for a three-year reappointment followed by reappointment to a five-year presumptively renewable contract.
We encourage applications and inquiries from candidates who contribute to the diversity of our faculty, including, but not limited to, people of color, people living with disabilities, and members of the LGBT community. Professor Reid Weisbord is chairing the tenure track appointments committee. Professor Jean-Marc Coicaud is chairing the LAWRS appointments committee. Interested candidates should email their application materials and put on the subject line the position for which they are applying. Candidates will be asked subsequently to submit their applications to the Rutgers University job portal.
