Description:

Suffolk University Law School in Boston invites applications for a full-time tenured or tenure-track position at any faculty rank to join our Legal Practice Skills Program starting in the 2023-2024 academic year. Legal writing faculty teach the required first-year Legal Practice Skills (LPS) course that covers legal research, reasoning, writing, and oral advocacy. Experienced LPS faculty may also have the opportunity to teach in other areas. Support for professional development will be provided.

We welcome applications from anyone who has a strong commitment to teaching legal writing and a record or promise of significant scholarship. Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae or resume, references, and a cover letter addressed to Professors Kathleen Vinson and Maritza Karmely, co-chairs of the Legal Practice Skills (LPS) Committee. Candidates are encouraged to describe activities mentoring members of underrepresented groups, describe how issues relating to diversity and inclusion have been or will be addressed in their courses, and/or how their scholarship contributes to building and supporting inclusive communities. All materials should be uploaded to the Suffolk University website here. Candidates are encouraged to submit applications via Jobvite by September 21, 2022. Candidates should not send duplicate materials to the co-chairs of the LPS Committee.
