Law School Hiring Thread, 2010-11, Thread One
This thread is now closed. Please post comments on Thread Three.
This thread is for both law professors and people who are on the market this coming year for becoming a law professor. We invite those on the market and those who are prawfs to leave comments (anonymously if they prefer) regarding:
a) whether they have received a first round interview at a school, and if the school mentioned the areas they were looking into, and whether the interview offer was accepted
b) a callback from a law school and/or accepted it and
b) whether they have received an offer from a law school and/or accepted it; feel free to also leave details about the offer or info about teaching loads, research leaves, etc. Please note that a school listed as "offer accepted" may have made more than one offer, and may still have some of those slots open. If we have an "aggregator," the aggregator will try to keep track of these (to the extent people let the aggregator know) in the spreadsheet that will be posted here.
Law professors may also choose to provide information that is relevant to the entry-level or the lateral market. Bear in mind: if you don't want your contact information displayed, please just enter in firstname.lastname@example.org or something like that as an email address.
Last two things: we have a separate thread called "a clearinghouse for questions" up over here at this link. Please do not use this thread below for general questions about the market. Second, there's an unbelievable cache of materials relevant to your job search under our archive category: Getting a Job on the Law Teaching Market, including a link to last year's clearinghouse for questions. Good luck!

A brief administrative announcement:
For those of you who couldn't avoid the train wreck image created by Brian Leiter's blog post about this thread (you still visited this link even though he said don't visit this worthless thread!), I invite you to avert your eyes. Really.
But notwithstanding Brian's foamy asseverations, I think reasonable people can disagree about its merits--for what it's worth, I know that I would have been grateful for this information to be out there when I was on the rookie market. I know others have agreed with me about this. So all I can say is: consider heeding Brian's well-meaning and usually wise advice if that's what works for you during this process.
Also, as to the FSU notice that someone put up, this would be a good time to remind readers that the fact that some people may have been called does not necessarily mean that all the calls are done. FSU still will make more calls. Ok, administrative announcement is over. Go back to panic or boredom.

I'm on the appointments committee for one of the schools listed above, and we've invited only a few candidates to interview. I bet this is true for many of the schools in the list. Just because a school is listed above, don't assume that they're done calling.
Posted by: Committee Member | Sep 1, 2010 11:06:08 AM
To reassure those in panic: I got a call from DePaul yesterday, though it was first listed a week ago. And it sounded like their schedule was not yet full.

Posted by: penelope | Sep 8, 2010 8:34:00 PM
IMHO - If you are going to post about a call, you really should identify the school!

Is this thread dead?
Posted by: strike2.9 | Sep 9, 2010 6:31:07 PM
Either the calls are not coming fast and furious or not as many people are chiming in as last year - it certainly feels a little quiet. Maybe it is just a late Labor Day and Jewish holidays holding the calls back. Or maybe it is a bad economy. I think next week will be big.
Posted by: anon | Sep 9, 2010 7:34:14 PM
Posted by: anon | Sep 9, 2010 8:43:11 PM
