Associate Clinical Professor of Law or Clinical Professor of Law
The James E. Rogers College of Law’s nationally ranked, award-winning Legal Writing Program invites applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for a full-time position commencing the Fall 2023 Semester. The position entails appointment as a Continuing-Eligible Professional or a Continuing Status Professional under Arizona Board of Regents Policy Manual section 6-302. The successful candidate will teach a section of our first-year Legal Research, Analysis, and Communication (LRAC) course each semester.
Our Program includes the required five-unit LRAC course and many upper-division offerings. Our faculty supervise our moot-court competition and coach moot-court teams. The LRAC courses are taught by a creative, collaborative, and diverse team of full-time faculty. Each LRAC professor is paired with a research librarian and works with three upper-level TAs who mentor students and facilitate exercises.
Professors may also teach in University of Arizona Law’s global programs, its first-in-the-nation BA-in-Law program, and its MLS and LLM programs. Writing faculty occasionally teach “podium” courses when curricular needs and the faculty member’s interest and expertise align.
Our faculty serve on committees and in leadership positions. Although Continuing Status does not require scholarship, scholarship—broadly defined—weighs in evaluation and promotion decisions. Our Program publishes the Journal of Appellate Practice and Process, and our faculty are encouraged to serve a role on that publication.
As part of a university ranked in the top 20 of public research universities in the nation, the College boasts myriad opportunities for interdisciplinary scholarship and is a truly global law school, with students around the world. The College embraces innovation, with groundbreaking degree programs, novel curricular offerings, and diverse experiential opportunities.
Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; sick leave and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
