Law School Hiring Thread, 2010-11, Thread Two

This thread is now closed. Please post comments on Thread Three.

This thread is for both law professors and people who are on the market this coming year for becoming a law professor. We invite those on the market and those who are prawfs to leave comments (anonymously if they prefer) regarding:

a) whether they have received a first round interview at a school, and if the school mentioned the areas they were looking into, and whether the interview offer was accepted

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

c) whether they have received an offer from a law school and/or accepted it; feel free to also leave details about the offer or info about teaching loads, research leaves, etc. Please note that a school listed as "offer accepted" may have made more than one offer, and may still have some of those slots open. The aggregator will try to keep track of these (to the extent people let the aggregator know) in the spreadsheet below.

Law professors may also choose to provide information that is relevant to the entry-level or the lateral market.  Bear in mind: if you don't want your contact information displayed, please just enter in [email protected] or something like that as an email address.

We now have an aggregator. All information should come in through the comments. Our aggregator will to 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 version below.

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.

I'm on the appointments committee here at Pace. We have not called back any entry-level candidates yet.

Markel: Andrew, thanks for clarifying.

Posted by: Andrew Lund | Nov 1, 2010 6:57:42 PM

Any one hear back from any of the NYC area or Philly area schools (except for Pace)?

Posted by: anonanon | Nov 1, 2010 4:02:03 PM

callback at Iowa

Posted by: anon | Nov 1, 2010 1:33:07 PM

Callbacks from Texas Wesleyan and Barry U.

Posted by: anon | Nov 1, 2010 1:15:07 PM

In addition to schools on this list, people I know have heard from Loyola (Los Angeles) and St. Thomas (Miami).

Posted by: anon | Nov 1, 2010 12:44:42 PM

My friends and I have heard from Stetson, Valparaiso, and Thomas Jefferson. I also know that Utah, which conducted skype interviews in advance of AALS, has already had candidates out to campus.

Posted by: anon | Nov 1, 2010 12:25:39 PM

I've heard that a number of schools have issued callbacks already, in no particular order:
FSU, U-Washington, GSU, Kansas, FIU.
This is from a number of candidates so please don't infer anything beyond what little this is.
updated: Pace, which was earlier listed, was a mistake. apologies.

Because they are in the middle of a Dean search, DePaul invited a slate of local pre-AALS interviews, and their plan was to extend an exploding offer pre-AALS. I guess someone accepted.

Posted by: Ana Espinosa | Oct 26, 2010 2:10:34 PM

A friend got a call from Howard last week.

Posted by: anonymous | Oct 25, 2010 7:40:54 PM

DePaul has canceled AALS interviews.

Markel: I've confirmed this is true indirectly. Thanks for sharing this.

Posted by: depaulflunkee | Oct 25, 2010 1:57:25 PM

FSU had made its first rookie hire of the year to someone who works at the intersection of tax and trust and estates law. I won't say who it is yet just b/c I'm not certain if it's public information at his/her workplace yet, but it's a great hire for FSU. For what it's worth, the committee has invited a number of people to campus at all levels of seniority and in many areas, and it will likely continue to do so for the coming months so no one should read this information as indicating anything beyond what it says. We are fortunate to have many lines available across a wide range of areas.

Posted by: FSU Prof | Oct 24, 2010 8:28:11 PM

I did a Skype interview with GSU but never heard anything.

Posted by: gsu | Oct 24, 2010 8:10:23 PM

Anono: yes, my understanding is that GSU made a number of callbacks in October

Posted by: Anon | Oct 24, 2010 5:59:08 PM

I heard that GSU did a bunch of Skype interviews a month or two ago ... did anyone get a call back or hear anything from them?

Posted by: anono | Oct 24, 2010 9:25:24 AM

Southern University Law Center is interviewing.

Posted by: Ana Espinosa | Oct 23, 2010 7:11:05 PM

7:57 - What schools? Perhaps people want to make a last minute push for an interview? Same with 5:52 ...

Posted by: anon | Oct 23, 2010 9:42:10 AM

I received a request to interview last night, much to my surprise. School has already been listed here, but they had many slots available.

Posted by: anon | Oct 23, 2010 7:57:28 AM

5:52 -- could you name the "4 T1 schools"?

Posted by: anon | Oct 22, 2010 12:18:47 PM

Did anyone receive a call from Howard University?

Posted by: anon | Oct 22, 2010 2:36:53 AM

In the last few days, heard from 4 T1 schools mentioned previously so the "calls until 2 weeks out rule" may be inapplicable this year because of the early AALS schedule.

Posted by: Anon | Oct 21, 2010 5:52:22 PM

Northwestern doesn't seem to have been listed before, but has made several calls over the last week or so.

Posted by: al-anon | Oct 21, 2010 7:34:06 AM

10:47: Chapman in Orange, CA (much higher than a T4) is interviewing with a view for future hire.

Posted by: AnonYmosa | Oct 20, 2010 8:57:30 PM

Thanks 2:05!

Posted by: Anon | Oct 20, 2010 2:30:57 PM

10:47 - re T4 So Cal schools: My information is that LaVerne is only hiring in legal writing, and Southwestern is not hiring at all.

Posted by: anon | Oct 20, 2010 2:05:07 PM

Stanford is interviewing this year

Posted by: Anonymous | Oct 18, 2010 8:47:56 PM

10:47 -- Last time I looked, TJ, Whittier and Western State had called but not Cal West or La Verne. Cal West does offer a fellowship with a March 2011 deadline. Not sure about whether either is going to AALS.

Posted by: anonymous | Oct 18, 2010 11:41:01 AM

Anyone heard from Southern California T4 schools, such as La Verne?

Posted by: Anonymous | Oct 17, 2010 10:14:17 PM

Maybe the non tenure track hiring is a reflection of the economy?

Posted by: Anon | Oct 17, 2010 2:55:49 PM

It sounds like legal academia is going the way of arts and sciences--lots of non-tenure-track hiring, but little tenure-track hiring.

Posted by: anon | Oct 16, 2010 8:43:51 PM

NYLS is hiring a bunch of new skills/legal writing teachers but no doctrinal subjects, from what I've heard

Posted by: anon | Oct 16, 2010 3:24:10 PM

How about New York Law School. Are they not hiring?

Posted by: anonymouse | Oct 16, 2010 2:56:42 PM

Buffalo has made calls, but I don't know about Wyoming or Memphis.

Posted by: Gossip girl | Oct 16, 2010 1:44:48 PM

Also, I don't see Buffalo on the list...anyone know if they're hiring this year? How about Wyoming?

Posted by: anon | Oct 16, 2010 11:14:13 AM

Is Memphis hiring this year?

Posted by: anon | Oct 16, 2010 11:07:59 AM

My understanding is Southwestern is not planning on hiring this year. They hired a number of entry level faculty last year.

Posted by: anon | Oct 16, 2010 2:12:21 AM

Thanks and good luck, seeker! Anyone heard from
southwestern in LA?

Posted by: Anon | Oct 15, 2010 4:46:15 PM

I only have 2 interviews but am still going; partly because it's an easy trip for me and partly because I think it will be a good practice for the next time I try. I'm also naively thinking that I might add another one or two in the next 2 weeks as other people cancel, but if not, it's not a big deal.

Posted by: seeker | Oct 15, 2010 3:40:49 PM

USF is not hiring tenuretracks this year but I believe is interviewing at AALS with a view to future hiring.

Posted by: anonymouse | Oct 14, 2010 6:07:16 PM

Hawaii is not hiring this year.

Posted by: Anon | Oct 13, 2010 9:48:11 PM

Univ. of Washington has made callbacks.

Posted by: Huskiebutnotfat | Oct 13, 2010 9:09:35 PM

@ Gossip Girl. Do you know when (s)he received the call?

Posted by: anonymouse | Oct 13, 2010 8:31:42 PM

I know someone with an interview there.

Posted by: Gossip girl | Oct 13, 2010 6:16:57 PM

Has *anyone* heard from Vermont?

Posted by: anon | Oct 13, 2010 5:18:15 PM

Anonyspouse: I heard through the grapevine that Northwestern, because of its transition to a new dean, isn't actively looking at entry level hires. Don't know anything about Emory.

Ana Espinosa: Stanford is, as you know, a much smaller school than Harvard. It hasn't hired any entry level professors through the AALS process for the last three years. I know people who were considered last year, but I think Stanford is really taking a "look-see" approach and will only hire outstanding candidates rather than fill any immediate curricular needs. In other words, the chances for a position are probably higher at Harvard than at Stanford.

Posted by: Anon | Oct 12, 2010 3:00:56 PM

Anyone know anything about Emory or Northwestern? Are they hiring entry level?

Posted by: anonyspouse | Oct 12, 2010 2:32:32 PM

Harvard has definitely called. Has anyone heard from Stanford?

Posted by: Ana Espinosa | Oct 12, 2010 2:27:32 PM

Harvard has definitely scheduled interviews for entry level positions. Has anyone heard from Stanford?

Posted by: Ana Espinosa | Oct 12, 2010 2:23:23 PM

Flop: I feel your pain. But I hear that schools do call up until the days before the conference, so don't give up all hope just yet.

Posted by: anomitron | Oct 12, 2010 3:08:22 AM

Harvard called/contacted a candidate on 9/24.

Posted by: anomitron | Oct 12, 2010 3:05:10 AM

why hasn't Harvard called?

Posted by: anon | Oct 11, 2010 11:20:20 PM

Canceled reservation @ Marriott

Posted by: flop | Oct 11, 2010 9:23:00 PM

Congrats anonYMouse. Duke and now Yale...!

Posted by: strike2.9 | Oct 9, 2010 3:14:17 PM

callback @ Yale

Posted by: anonYMouse | Oct 9, 2010 12:35:03 PM

Virginia (UVA)

Posted by: anon | Oct 8, 2010 1:04:22 PM

GULC, Seton Hall

Posted by: hoyasaxa | Oct 8, 2010 7:36:54 AM

I'd like to bump anonymous' question at Oct 7, 2010 3:26:45 PM

Posted by: strike2.9 | Oct 8, 2010 2:24:38 AM

To AnoN | Oct 1, 2010 10:10:40 PM re Northeastern -- I hear they made several hires over the past couple of years and this year, they are only looking for a Dean of Experiential Education (covering their LSSC program, co-ops, and clinics). I believe the position will be tenure track.

Posted by: anonimation | Oct 7, 2010 8:26:38 PM

How about Western New England? Anyone heard anything?

Posted by: anon234 | Oct 7, 2010 5:44:40 PM

Oops, delete the previous post; I was thinking Western State, which was first posted 8/31 according to the spreadsheet.
