Law School Hiring, 2014-2015, Thread One

Those on the market are invited 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 market.  

Four miscellaneous things:

1. If you don't want your contact information displayed, enter [email protected] 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 five 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!

any callbacks?

I'm not sure, but it felt like very few candidates with several interviews, all interviewing for the same jobs. There really wasn't a large number of people there. I suspect that schools were being more selective this year, which may work against lower ranked schools.

Not in the hunt this year, but curious for a ballpark number of how many applicants appeared to be participating at AALS this past week?

Got an interview at McDonalds' School of Fast-Food Service. Looking very promising...

Anyone receive recent AALS interview offers for VAP positions?

Posted by: aalsnovice | Oct 15, 2014 10:43:35 AM

Props to University of Maine for clear and timely communication -- they emailed me to say that they aren't pursuing my candidacy (in response to a packet I sent them). Dings are relevant too.

Anyone hearing from environmental/energy/natural resources positions?

AALS interview with Stanford, no area specified

Posted by: anon473 | Oct 8, 2014 3:29:21 PM

I've received an acknowledgment of my application from Queen's in Ontario, but the Canadian schools are not on the AALS timeframe and thus do not seem to be moving as quickly. That's just a guess though.

Posted by: anon | Oct 6, 2014 12:58:20 PM

I know the thread is focused on AALS schools, but did anyone have success with schools elsewhere, like Canada?

Wash U isn't doing any entry-level hiring this year, unfortunately.

Anyone hear from Emory or UNC?

Posted by: Anon | Oct 2, 2014 7:49:04 PM

Unless it's an elite school (which will always purport to hire best athletes), you may wish to consider asking about areas. Even if it's a non-elite school and is conducting a best-athlete search, it might welcome the opportunity to say so.

Posted by: anon | Oct 2, 2014 4:50:00 PM

Anyone heard from UConn?

Posted by: anon | Oct 2, 2014 12:19:03 PM

Thanks for posting. That's very helpful.

Posted by: anon | Sep 30, 2014 8:54:08 PM

I'm about 99% sure that Wharton isn't doing interviews at the AALS. I think they will do phone/skype interviews for the first round, if they do those at all, and then bring people in. (They didn't interview people at the AALS in the past, either, I think, though please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Posted by: anon | Sep 30, 2014 8:41:21 PM

Has anyone heard from Stanford or Wharton for interviews at the AALS?

AALS interview with Georgetown, no particular area

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2014 10:13:33 AM

Materials means job talk paper, cv, and research agenda. In general schools have your cv if you uploaded it and your research agenda if you appended it to your cv. But they still ask for all three, though the job talk is really what they're looking for. Often top schools read your job talk before inviting you for a preliminary interview. Others invite you for an AALS interview and then request your job talk paper. Any other experiences?

Posted by: GP | Sep 19, 2014 3:43:14 AM

Anyone brave enough to actually say what "materials" they were asked for? This question has been oft asked, ne'er well answered.

Posted by: Anon | Sep 19, 2014 2:53:26 AM

Cardozo Q - through the FAR.

Posted by: anon | Sep 18, 2014 8:28:05 PM

AALS interviews with Arizona and LSU, both for crim pro.

Posted by: anon | Sep 18, 2014 7:52:17 PM

For those with a pre-AALS interview with Cardozo: Are you going through AALS, or did you get the interview from a direct inquiry that you made?

Posted by: Cardozo Q | Sep 18, 2014 4:58:54 PM

NYU - request for materials
Wharton-Legal Studies - invitation to apply for their legal studies/business ethics position. Did everyone in FAR or every business law candidate get this invitation?
