|Description:||Concordia University School of Law School is hiring an Assistant Director of the Legal Research and Writing Program, beginning in the 2014-15 academic year. This position is tenure track with full voting rights, and service and scholarship expectations. Concordia University is a private, non-profit university with its main campus in Portland, Oregon. In 2012, it opened its law school in Boise, Idaho. The law school is located in the center of downtown Boise's urban core, just steps away from the Idaho Supreme Court, the Ada County Courthouse, and the State Capitol. Boise consistently appears in the national spotlight. Boise has been listed as one of the West's "20 Towns of the Future" and praised for its abundant open spaces, including the Boise Rive Greenbelt, hundreds of miles of trails stretching into the surrounding foothills. World-class whitewater, a ski resort, and pristine wilderness areas are all a short drive from downtown Boise. The US News and World Report consistently ranks Boise as one of the 10 best places to live in America, and Business Week called it one of the best small cities for start-ups in the United States. As the main metropolitan area in a 300-mile radius, Boise is a cultural hub, and a magnet for entrepreneurial talent and a community-minded attitude. Boise boasts some of the best cultural offerings in the northwest, such as the Boise Art Museum, Trey McIntyre Project, and Idaho Shakespeare Festival. Concordia’s LRW curriculum is transitioning to a hybrid full-time/adjunct program. Successful candidates will be able to (1) work collaboratively with the Director to create teaching materials related to major assignments and specific curricular goals in the first-year LRW program, (2) engage and encourage the students as they solve increasingly complex legal problems, and (3) coordinate the development of the advanced writing courses and implementation of writing across the curriculum. In addition, the successful candidate will have both practice and teaching experience. Concordia encourages applications from all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Concordia University does not discriminate in the employment of individuals on the basis of race, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, familial status, disability, sex, gender, sexual orientation or age; Concordia University reserves the right to give preference in employment based upon religion to further the religious objective of the institution and The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
