Law School Hiring, 2011-2012, Thread Two

NB: Bounced to the front every ten days or so.

We invite those on the market to leave comments on this thread regarding whether they have received:

(a) a callback from a law school and/or accepted it; or

(b) an offer from a law school and/or accepted it; feel free to also leave details about the offer, including teaching load, research leave, etc. A school listed as "offer accepted" may have made more than one offer and may still have some slots open.

Law professors may also choose to provide information that is relevant to the entry-level or the lateral market.  


1. If you don't want your contact information displayed, enter anon@anon.edu or something like that as an email address.

2. Members of hiring committees, if you see something incorrect in the comments (e.g., someone says they have an offer at your school, but you haven't made any offers), please email me directly, slawsky *at* law *dot* uci *dot* edu, and I will delete or amend the comment and adjust the spreadsheet, and if the person at that IP address persists in posting incorrect information, I will block the IP address. 

3. All information should come in through the comments. Our aggregator will use a spreadsheet to aggregate the information.  Only the aggregator will be able to edit the spreadsheet, but when the aggregator edits the spreadsheet, those changes will be reflected in the embedded, downloadable version below.

Here is the spreadsheet, which is downloadable.

Please be patient with the aggregator, who will try to update this spreadsheet once a day, but may have a job, and perhaps may even be on the market.

Good luck!

Additional Links:

There is a  separate thread, "A Clearinghouse for Questions," for general questions or comments about the teaching market. Please do not use the thread below for general questions or comments. (Such comments will be deleted, not out of hostility or in a judgy way, just to keep this thread focused.)

There's quite a cache of materials relevant to the law job market under the archive category Getting a Job on the Law Teaching Market.  The clearinghouse for questions thread from 2010-2011 is here.

This year's first hiring thread is here. Comments on that thread are now closed.

Update: the last page of comments is here.

Denver made one offer in the area of Corporate Commercial.

Time for a third thread for information about offers accepted? No need to maintain anonymity at that point.

Posted by: anon | Dec 12, 2011 2:04:49 PM

UNLV has extended multiple offers.

Posted by: Anon | Dec 12, 2011 2:30:54 PM

Posted by: anon | Dec 13, 2011 4:08:39 PM

Willamette has made an offer that has been accepted.

Posted by: anon | Dec 13, 2011 5:51:17 PM

Seattle has made an offer

Posted by: anon | Dec 13, 2011 9:54:16 PM

Does Denver anticipate making another offer, or is the commercial law one it?

Also, anyone know if UMKC has made any offers, and if so, in what?

Posted by: anon | Dec 14, 2011 2:12:32 PM

In response to anon, UMKC dinged someone after the call back, so if you haven't heard, it's not all bad! Anyone know about Widener and Indiana-Indianapolis? Thanks to the aggregator and everyone else!

Posted by: Anon2 | Dec 14, 2011 5:17:56 PM

Indianapolis emailed me and told me that they had made a first round of offers, but since they are looking to hire up to six people, they could be doing more callbacks in January. Widener has made an offer to a tax person, apparently, but I'm not sure if it was accepted or if they are planning on making offers in other subject areas. They have not been diligent about communicating with candidates (according to the naughty list at the faculty lounge, my experience, and the experience of another person I've talked to).

Posted by: anon | Dec 14, 2011 5:30:32 PM

Anyone heard from the University of Utah post-callback?

Posted by: Aspiring LawProf | Dec 18, 2011 1:31:27 AM

Southern Illinois University has extended an offer in the commercial law/contracts area that has been accepted.

Posted by: anon | Dec 19, 2011 12:38:37 PM

An offer has been accepted at Valpo.

Posted by: anon | Dec 19, 2011 9:48:22 PM

Richmond made offers to two candidates for int'l law positions and both have been accepted.

Posted by: anon | Dec 23, 2011 10:56:06 AM

What about the other U Missouri posting, for trial practice? Anyone heard anything after callbacks?

Posted by: brm | Dec 31, 2011 5:26:15 AM

Ding from Widener - no AALS interview, but did send them a letter.

Posted by: patient | Jan 2, 2012 11:28:54 AM

is this thread dead?

Posted by: anon | Jan 7, 2012 6:42:28 PM

I think it's a bit early to pronounce it dead. There wasn't a lot of hiring committee action over the holidays, but I think things will pick back up. I know the school where I work has several job talks scheduled this month.

Posted by: anon | Jan 7, 2012 7:00:15 PM

The thread isn't dead... just quiet. I believe it will pick up again shortly, now that the AALS Annual Meeting is wrapping up and the Spring semester is starting.

Posted by: the aggregator | Jan 7, 2012 9:36:13 PM

Offer very happily accepted at Ohio Northern (business associations).

Posted by: Anon | Jan 9, 2012 2:25:17 PM

To the extent it will help keep the spreadsheet accurate, if not completely timely: Offer from U of Oregon 12/1 (civil litigation), happily accepted 12/12. Best of luck to everyone still waiting to hear.

Posted by: Erik | Jan 11, 2012 1:34:43 PM

Ohio State has made one or more offers. I don't have other details.

Posted by: anon | Jan 11, 2012 1:41:20 PM

FYI - new additions to the spreadsheet. Also, if people are turning down offers, please report that as well. People who are waiting to hear from particular schools may find that information useful.

Thanks, and continued good luck wishes to all.
