Law School Hiring Thread, 2010-11, Thread Three

NB: This thread will be moved to the front every ten days or so.

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 callback from a law school and/or accepted it and

b) 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 will continue our spreadsheet approach: 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.

Not me, but I've of heard people received rejections from Indiana and Cornell. Also, ambiguous emails from Iowa, Case Western, and Florida. And lots of silence too.

Through the law school grapevine, I've heard of callback offers from Indiana - Bloomington, Brooklyn, and UCIrvine. I also take it at least one person has had a callback at USC. I don't know whether any fields were specified for any of these. Separately, I just noticed that UPenn was not on the list of law schools interviewing at AALS, but they definitely had a room there.

WNEC was interviewing for commercial law

Posted by: anon-law professor | Nov 4, 2010 7:27:15 PM

Wait, Anon 4:21, WNEC was interviewing in DC? Do you know what subject(s)?

Posted by: anon | Nov 4, 2010 6:14:30 PM

To anon @ 4:21: Western State is a different law school from Western New England (google it).

Posted by: anon | Nov 4, 2010 5:23:39 PM

Case Western arranged at least one callback before the meat market. I'm not sure whether they've called back any interview candidates yet.

Posted by: anomana | Nov 4, 2010 4:34:21 PM

to the aggregator: You list "Western State" as a school. Perhaps you meant to include "Western New England?" They were interviewing.

There's only one Wash. U. (St. Louis). There's the University of Washington (Seattle).

Posted by: anon | Nov 4, 2010 3:57:54 PM

Candydate @ 2:51: To which Washington U. are you referring?

Posted by: anon | Nov 4, 2010 3:39:12 PM

Pitt. IU-Indianapolis. Wash U.

Nov 2: 1:18: Just take it as a courtesy notice that the two-week period is the time frame in which they will make their callbacks. Can't read more into it than that.

10:38:16: It may be rare, but not unheard of. USF and Chapman interviewed at AALS but may not necessarily be hiring this year. As for Fordham, I have no information, so I cannot extrapolate. But the basic point is that some schools interviewed at AALS without any definite plans to hire.

Posted by: Anonymous | Nov 3, 2010 11:50:58 PM

Anyone else heard that about Fordham? As far as I know it is very rare for a school to interview at the AALS knowing that it is not hiring. I've heard that Harvard did it a few years ago but that it is very rare.

Anyone heard anything from Fordham or another NY school?

Posted by: Ann | Nov 3, 2010 10:38:16 PM

I heard from someone that Fordham wasn't hiring any tenure tracks despite interviewing at AALS.

Quinnipiac called.
Did anyone hear anything from any school in the NYC area?

Posted by: Anon | Nov 3, 2010 1:19:38 PM

Public service announcement: from my network of classmates i know that Georgia, Arizona State, Maryland, Cincinnati, Penn State, Richmond, and Alabama have started making calls. Hope this helps & that others will share what they know, too. Information is power!

Denver U
Seattle U
Saint John's

to the aggregator: the document also lists DePaul as "no hiring." DePaul hired three candidates right before the AALS, apparently they were running a first order "early/local" hiring stratgey and using the AALS as a back up.

Posted by: anon | Nov 2, 2010 4:54:27 PM

If I received a "We'll be in touch in the next couple of weeks" note, does that mean the school has started to call back others, and that my candidacy is officially "b-team"? Or might that mean they have not decided whom they are calling back yet?

Posted by: anon | Nov 2, 2010 1:18:31 PM

Thank you.

To aggregator: I was looking at the chart above ... Memphis was interviewing in DC (contract and sales)
PS - I think Syracuse is private (and not part of the SUNY system).
