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 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 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!

The successful candidates must have a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively with diverse communities.

The University of New Hampshire School of Law is situated in Concord, the capital of New Hampshire. Concord is approximately an hour’s drive from Boston, the beautiful New Hampshire seacoast, and the White Mountains. To apply, please email a letter of interest and a CV (listing references with contact information) to faculty.appointments@law.unh.edu.

Where was the ad for Colorado? I didn't see anything in the Placement Bulletin.

Posted by: anon | Sep 15, 2014 10:00:35 PM

My mistake about Colorado. Either I am confusing them with another school or I heard it anecdotally rather than in the bulletin.

I would be interested to know if they specified an area for the interview.

Posted by: anon | Sep 15, 2014 11:40:29 PM

No area specified for Colorado. (And I'm definitely not a tax person.)
