The University of Missouri School of Law invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track, nine-month appointment in its Legal Research and Writing program for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The program is a four-credit, two-semester, graded course sequence. The successful applicant will be responsible for teaching two sections of Legal Research & Writing during the fall semester and two sections of Advocacy & Research during the spring semester, plus two additional courses to be determined by curricular needs and the legal writing professor’s interests. These courses may involve participation in or oversight of a student success program.
The law school seeks an applicant who will be a collaborative member of an autonomous three-member team that will make decisions about the program, and one who is passionate and reflective about teaching and dedicated to student learning.
Qualified applicants will hold a J.D. from an accredited law school, a strong academic record, excellent legal research and writing skills, and experience in the practice of law. The ideal candidate would also have experience teaching legal research and writing.
Applications should be made through the university’s online application system.
