Announcement: Prospective Law Teachers Workshop at SEALS

Each year, SEALS hosts a Prospective Law Teachers Workshop, which provides opportunities for aspiring law teachers to network and participate in mock interviews and mock job talks — prior to the actual teaching market. The Committee also schedules 1-on-1 sessions for candidates to receive faculty feedback on their CVs. This year’s Prospective Law Teacher’s Workshop will be held at The Boca Resort in Boca Raton, Florida on Wednesday, August 2 and Thursday, August 3. On Wednesday, there will be mock interviews between 8 and 10 AM with CV review sessions at 1:00. On Thursday, mock job talks will take place from 8 to 10 AM. And at 3:00 on Thursday, we will have a panel entitled “Navigating the Hiring Process” which will feature recent tenure track hires who will give advice about getting hired in this “new" market. There are also many excellent panels on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday that are targeted to newer law professors, which prospective law professors will also find helpful. See http://sealslawschools.org/submissions/program/programwp.asp.

If you are interested in participating in this year’s workshop, please send your CV to professor Brad Areheart (Tennessee) at brad.areheart@tennessee.edu, who co-chairs the committee along with Leah Grinvald (Suffolk). Applications are due by May 15, 2017. Many of the past workshop participants have gone on to obtain tenure-track positions in legal academia and now teach at a wide variety of schools, including Tulane, South Carolina, UNC, Cal Western, Oklahoma, Boston U, Idaho, Colorado, Louisville, and others.

Does this workshop include a discussion of why candidates who think they might like to become law professors in fact might NOT like the job? I think that could be useful, too.

Wasserman closed the comments on the Colbert post, so I'll write it here. I think it's a great "blow" for freedom that we can now talk about the president being fellated by another leader. I'm kind of curious to see the cartoons, personally.

I think everyone attending and sitting on this panel should make a point of being inebriated. There is maybe 30 minutes of universally applicable advice to be dispensed. Then it's just different opinions, none of which are necessarily wrong. Add to that a general aura of depressingness and the only sensible way to approach it is well lubricated.

Was there in recent years. Was not all fun, but was brutal accurate, dead-on the events later that Fall in DC. Take it as you will; it was honest. It was very useful.
