Entry Level Hiring: The 2013 Report - Call for Information

Time once again for the entry level hiring report.

I will gather the following information for tenure-track, clinical, or legal writing full-time entry-level hires: 

Basic Information: Name, Hiring School, JD Institution, JD Year of Graduation

Other Degrees: Type of Degree,  Degree Granting Institution, Degree Subject

Fellowship, VAP, or Visiting Professorship: Institution and Type (e.g., VAP, name of fellowship, etc.)

Clerkship: Court (e.g., 9th Circuit, Texas Supreme Court, etc.)

Areas of Speciality (up to four) (if you are a clinical or LRW hire, please list this as your first Area of Specialty)

Type of Position: Tenure Track or Non-Tenure Track (if you are clinical or LRW and also tenure-track, please indicate this)

The information will be aggregated on this spreadsheet (which is reproduced below and which you can view and download by clicking on this link); scroll across (using the little triangle-looking thing at the bottom of the spreadsheet) to see all of the information we will be aggregating. 

Please leave the information in the comments, and, to protect those on the job market, please sign the comment with your real name. (Ideally, the reporting person would be either the hired individual or someone from the hiring committee at the hiring school.) If you would like to email information instead of posting it, please send it to Sarah Lawsky at slawsky *at* law *dot* uci *dot* edu. Remember: you can't edit the spreadsheet yourself. To get your information into the spreadsheet, you must either post in the comments or email me.

We will also gather the names of schools that are doing no entry-level hiring this year (that's the second tab on the spreadsheet), so if you know for sure that your school is not doing entry-level hiring, please post that in the comments or email me.

If you see any errors, or if I have incorporated your information into the spreadsheet but you are not yet ready to make it public, please don't hesitate to email me, and I will take care of the problem as soon as I can.

This report follows in the tradition of Larry Solum's excellent work over many years.

Previous years' spreadsheets look like hiring occurred well into May. So maybe don't close the thread just yet?

Posted by: anon | Apr 18, 2013 11:12:17 PM

Once this thread is closed, it might be very useful to run comparative numbers for 2013 with the last few years. (Maybe someone has already done this...) My sense is that this has been a really dreadful hiring market.

I could easily take reports of clinical and LRW hires for this report, and simply mark the type of hire in the spreadsheet. It would be very easy to sort later. I'll put up a post to that effect.

Posted by: Sarah Lawsky | Mar 1, 2013 2:25:09 PM

Thanks, Sarah, for the quick reply. Do you (or anyone else) believe it would be helpful to the community to have a separate report for clinical and LRW hires as well? I'm guessing that many readers might be interested in that market. Thanks!

Posted by: anon | Mar 1, 2013 2:21:34 PM

This is meant to be for tenure-track hires. (That said, I depend on self-reporting and do not independently verify.)

Posted by: Sarah Lawsky | Mar 1, 2013 2:09:01 PM

Is this for tenure track only? Or non-TT clinical and LRW as well?

Thanks, Sarah, for putting the info together! I confess I was amused to click on last year's thread and see your note that the 2012 hiring thread was opened too soon: "Next year I'll start it later (early April) and see if that makes a difference."

"Fellowship" includes VAPs. There is an "other" column where I can include an additional VAP/fellowship if people would like that to be represented. Feel free to include whatever you would like for area of specialty--research area, teaching area, however you would like to be represented.

Posted by: Sarah Lawsky | Feb 27, 2013 5:19:14 PM

Is "Area" related to what was put on the FAR form, or research area, or both?

Also, you may want to include a column for VAPs and also add multiple fellowships, since there has been discussion about how more than one VAP / Fellowship may be needed to get a job this year.
