Law School Hiring, 2012-2013, Thread One

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 first round interview at a school (including the subject areas the school mentioned, if any, as being of particular interest, and whether the interview offer was accepted);

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

(c) 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.  

Four miscellaneous things:

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

2. 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.)

3. There's quite a cache of materials relevant to the law job market under the archive categories Getting a Job on the Law Teaching Market and Entry Level Hiring Report.

4. Finally, in each of the last four years, someone who is on the market has volunteered to aggregate the information on a spreadsheet. If you would like to volunteer, please contact me directly at slawsky *at* law *dot* uci *dot* edu, and I will get you set up.

We now have an aggregator, and we will thus continue our spreadsheet approach: 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!

Update: Here is a link to the last page of comments.

NYLS is holding multiple days of pre-AALS interviews. I was offered one of their pre-AALs slots. They didn't specify an area, nor had I sent them a targeted packet, but I am generally in the commercial law space.

on the market (again), are you in the tristate area?

Posted by: fran drescher | Aug 28, 2012 4:44:51 PM

I'm on the appointments committee at my school. We are having our first meeting tomorrow to discuss who to extend AALS interview invitations to. So, yes, it's early in the game folks.

Posted by: AnonLawProf | Aug 28, 2012 5:41:38 PM

Ditto on NYLS. I am not in the tristate area but in the general northeast.

Posted by: AALS | Aug 28, 2012 5:46:21 PM

Does anyone have some idea of the general % of AALS interviews that result in job talks and, in turn, the general % of job talks that result in offers?

Posted by: AnonVAP | Aug 28, 2012 9:42:20 PM

This seems like a good place to announce that contrary to some list that's going around I'm NOT the chair, or even on, the hiring committee at George Mason this year. Please cease the letters, emails, etc.

Posted by: David Bernstein | Aug 28, 2012 10:11:57 PM

I'm close enough for it to be a day trip.

Posted by: on the market (again) | Aug 28, 2012 10:54:25 PM

Folks, unless it's real information about a particular school calling about an invitation, please don't use this thread for anything else. If you're not sure, err on the side of putting your comments and questions on the clearinghouse for questions thread. Everything not exactly on point after this will be deleted. Thanks.

Confirming Ohio Northern. No field specified. Also, Richmond made some calls late last week. I've got an esoteric mix of teaching interests so I'm not going to say precisely what they are hiring for, but it generally tracks what's posted on the hiring committee thread.

Perhaps it'll make people feel better to know that committees make calls in waves. I just got a call from Fla State (no area specified), which was reported to have made some calls at least a week ago.

Also, South Texas for secured transactions, payment systems and consumer law.

Posted by: on the market (again) | Sep 4, 2012 11:22:29 AM

AALS- Suffolk- contracts, property, corp. transactional skills, ADR, employment law

Posted by: VAP | Sep 5, 2012 12:42:00 PM

I hope this question is OK here--wondering if any civ pro/evidence or con law people have gotten calls? I'm sure some have (I have), but I'm wondering how it compares to calls for commercial/transactional--also things like health law, employment law, trusts & estates. Thanks.

Posted by: bacon = the star of the meat market | Sep 5, 2012 1:55:54 PM

AALS interview scheduled yesterday (Sept. 4) with Florida State (unspecified field)
