Law School Hiring, 2013-2014, Thread One

We invite those on the market 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 [email protected] 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!

Any thoughts, updates after The Big Weekend?

Posted by: Keinerle | Oct 20, 2013 8:26:06 PM

[email protected], yes, I received an email from them last week canceling the interview because they were "no longer in a position to hire someone in the international law area."

Posted by: anonymous | Oct 14, 2013 3:09:41 PM

Any word that NYLS is canceling interviews at AALS for international law-focused candidates?

Posted by: anon | Oct 7, 2013 3:27:40 PM

Penn yes (about two weeks ago), Texas no.

Posted by: anon | Oct 7, 2013 9:50:58 AM

Anyone know of people who have heard from Penn or Texas?

Posted by: anon | Oct 7, 2013 9:15:10 AM

I'm in the same position as anon on 10/5 at 6:14:34 PM re: Duke.

Posted by: anon | Oct 6, 2013 5:05:29 PM

Radio silence this past week

Posted by: anon | Oct 6, 2013 4:41:05 PM

I haven't heard from Duke, though I've heard from most of the T14.

Posted by: anon | Oct 5, 2013 6:14:34 PM

Anyone hear from duke?

Posted by: Anon | Oct 1, 2013 3:47:08 PM

Best of luck this week to everyone!

Posted by: anon02 | Oct 1, 2013 2:01:19 AM

Anyone know what the subject matter was for Fordham?

Posted by: Anon | Sep 30, 2013 6:11:02 PM

When do VAPs typically start making calls? Some have recommended apply by dates and rolling reviews, but I don't think they say when interview decisions are expected.

Michigan AALS

Posted by: anon | Sep 29, 2013 5:38:30 PM

Berkeley AALS

Posted by: Anon | Sep 29, 2013 2:51:42 PM

Arkansas -- 9/27

Posted by: anon | Sep 28, 2013 2:07:42 AM

Hawaii -- 9/27

Posted by: anon | Sep 28, 2013 2:05:58 AM

I heard from San Diego on 9/11.

Posted by: anon | Sep 27, 2013 4:03:33 PM

Harvard AALS

Posted by: anon | Sep 27, 2013 9:06:02 AM

Two weeks ago, I heard that Berkeley was not meeting for a few more weeks. So either this week or next I would expect. Alot of the top schools are slower; all of them really, there are only one or two listed for schools like penn, cornell, UVA, etc. granted there is underrpresemtation, but alot of the top schools ask to review work so they may make calls in waves more than schools who just rely on the sheet.

Posted by: Anon | Sep 26, 2013 4:02:36 PM

Someone previously said Duke was meeting this week. I have reason to believe Harvard hasn't made calls yet. Berkeley I don't know.

Posted by: anon | Sep 26, 2013 3:52:14 PM

For what it's worth, I got an email from Georgia indicating that it was unclear whether they would go any hiring this year. I'm unsure whether they are scheduling interviews or not.

Posted by: anon | Sep 25, 2013 10:58:26 PM

St. Mary's called for an AALS interview.

Posted by: uhnon | Sep 25, 2013 8:55:46 AM

Michigan asked for materials this week

Posted by: anon | Sep 24, 2013 6:18:44 PM

Georgetown and Northwestern contacted me prior to this week.

Posted by: anon | Sep 24, 2013 4:39:01 PM

Anon with the Wisconsin and Chicago-Kent calls - What is your area?

Posted by: Curious | Sep 24, 2013 2:43:29 PM

Wisconsin. Chicago-Kent.

Posted by: anon | Sep 24, 2013 2:12:20 PM

Penn State, IP

Posted by: anon | Sep 24, 2013 2:04:33 PM

I thought I saw a post on here asking if Wisconsin or Michigan had made any calls. I have the same question. Has anyone gotten a call from Wisconsin or Michigan?

(And I don't think not going to AALS indicates financial trouble. It's not that expensive to send a committee. It's just easier/cheaper to not).

Posted by: Curious | Sep 24, 2013 1:58:08 PM

Does this mean that TX is in financial trouble? I have to admit it sort of seems that way.

Posted by: anony | Sep 24, 2013 1:49:23 PM

@anon 6:17: Texas is not the only one taking this approach. Many school identify their ideal candidates and invite them for "call backs" even before the FRC. It seems that many schools will not attend FRC this year, but it does not necessarily mean they are not hiring, just using a different process.

Posted by: anony | Sep 24, 2013 1:25:53 PM

For what it's worth, I heard from a friend that Texas is hiring, but may not be attending the October conference. I am not sure how they intend to proceed if this approach is correct.

Posted by: anon | Sep 23, 2013 6:17:06 PM

Mercer, Mississippi College of Law, Faulkner

Posted by: anon | Sep 23, 2013 5:42:40 PM

I hear that Duke is meeting this week.

Posted by: anon | Sep 23, 2013 2:49:06 PM

I know people with calls from Notre Dame. I've gotten two calls today--one top 50 and one top 100.

Posted by: anon | Sep 23, 2013 2:37:23 PM


Posted by: anotheranon | Sep 23, 2013 2:16:00 PM


Yes, UNT has arranged screening interviews.

Posted by: anon | Sep 21, 2013 1:20:25 PM

schools space it out sometimes, if you look at past years schools varied in when they called people.

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 7:35:49 PM

would anybody know if schools mostly call everyone in one go or do they space it out over a couple of days? I see here a bunch of schools that have made calls and am wondering if there's some hope in expecting calls at least early part of next week.

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 7:24:03 PM

Do you know if anyone has received a call from UNT at this point?

Posted by: anon1 | Sep 20, 2013 6:27:17 PM

South Texas, St. Mary's, Texas A&M, and Texas Southern are not hiring this year from what I've heard.

UNT-Dallas is interviewing before AALS. Texas Tech is making calls.

I have not heard anything about Texas but am planning on speaking with a friend there next week and will report anything that I hear.

SMU is purportedly in the market, but I have not heard anyone getting an interview. I am planning on talking to a professor there next weekend so will try to get info.

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 4:28:08 PM

Anyone heard from ANY Texas schools (other than UH)?

Posted by: anon1 | Sep 20, 2013 3:31:32 PM

Anyone heard from Texas?

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 3:11:15 PM


Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 3:05:15 PM

Anyone heard from Harvard yet?

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 2:51:47 PM


Posted by: Anon | Sep 20, 2013 2:50:34 PM

W&M - 9/13

Posted by: anonymous | Sep 20, 2013 1:42:44 PM

Chicago AALS - 9/19

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 1:00:54 PM

Methodology note. I am entering date of posting as the "date" unless a date of call is specified. Also, I am only posting interviews when the poster makes it clear the call was to him/her. I'm not posting ambiguous "X is making calls" stuff or "confirming X" unless it is absolutely clear to me that the poster is the individual called.

Posted by: Aggregator | Sep 20, 2013 12:38:13 PM

Georgetown made calls to a several people for AALS, 9/12-9/14

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 11:23:40 AM

To anon 9/19 at 2:33:05: was UNC call lateral or clinical? or entry-level?

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 11:17:00 AM

No, the Wake Forest isn't for a VAP.

Posted by: anon | Sep 20, 2013 1:38:40 AM

USC's committee is meeting though so maybe they are considering it
