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!

Posted by: BJR | Sep 19, 2013 3:38:24 PM

Posted by: Anon | Sep 19, 2013 3:26:39 PM

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 2:40:35 PM

I have heard Wash U. is not hiring this year.

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 2:40:33 PM

Posted by: anotheranon | Sep 19, 2013 2:37:08 PM

BC and UNC have begun setting up interviews.

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 2:33:05 PM

I've heard rumors that Wash U, BC, BU, UNC all will not be hiring, though others might have better information.

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 2:28:33 PM

Any word out there from Duke, Northwestern, Wash U, BC, BU, UNC?

Posted by: anonanon | Sep 19, 2013 2:19:33 PM

Curious, I've heard from Barry for commercial law and from Temple and Ave Maria with no area specified.

Posted by: Batman | Sep 19, 2013 12:28:05 PM

I've heard from one of the California schools you list, but I haven't heard from anyone else.

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 12:07:39 PM

USC is not hiring this year.

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 11:47:20 AM

I'm also curious about UPenn, Harvard, Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Texas... and a whole lot of other schools... But any word for these listed?

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 11:44:35 AM

What about Harvard or Berkeley? I know they've been asking for additional materials, but has anyone scheduled a formal interview with them yet?

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 11:37:55 AM

Does anyone have information as to whether schools that have expressed an interest in the commercial arena (e.g. Barry, Ave Maria, Pitt, Temple) have set up AALS interviews for those areas? Many thanks.

Posted by: Curious | Sep 19, 2013 11:14:36 AM

I know someone who has heard from 3/4 of those, including the two anon mentions.

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 11:09:31 AM

Cornell and Virginia have made at least some calls.

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 11:05:36 AM

Has Cornell, Georgetown, Michigan or Virginia called anybody?

Posted by: anon | Sep 19, 2013 10:55:16 AM

I this this thread is positively harmful and yet, like a car wreck, I cannot pull myself away.

In any case, Northern Kentucky / area not specified.

Posted by: Anon | Sep 18, 2013 8:40:45 AM

I'm pretty sure that, for every person who thinks this thread is positively harmful, there are many others who think it provides a very useful service--I certainly belong in the latter camp, and appreciate all the postings here, limited as they are.

BC is making calls to some candidates for our junior position in business law and related areas. That is not confidential (though of course since not every candidate has told their current employer of their plans, the identities of those called indeed is confidential). We have no objections to anyone sharing information about our calls with readers of this blog. (I'm not really clear why anyone would think that other committees would object, either.) Readers should not assume, however, that the fact that some other person has received a call from us indicates that the reader will not also receive a call in the future.

Posted by: BDG | Sep 17, 2013 4:19:05 PM

For me, it's simple. There are some people that think this thread is not just useless but affirmatively harmful, and those who read and participate in it are contributing to all sorts of anxiety and status-consciousness, etc. It does no good to be associated with something people think is frivolous or worse, and it might well be harmful. Even if the chance is very, very low, it's a risk without much of an offsetting benefit.

Posted by: anon | Sep 17, 2013 3:44:13 PM

of course nobody is obliged to post anything here, but I'm just curious why one can't post these calls?

Posted by: anon | Sep 17, 2013 3:26:26 PM

Likewise, heard from a school in the top 30 yesterday and not posting details. Sry.

Posted by: anon | Sep 17, 2013 3:20:41 PM

To answer ahaj's question: I have heard from a schools in the T10-T30 range this week, so not radio silence exactly. I'm not posting details about me or them.

Posted by: anon | Sep 17, 2013 2:45:59 PM

Is it just radio silence out there from everyone? There are still lots of schools no one posted yet. Are committees still meeting? two days and no one has posted much.

NYLS, IP, pre-AALS, by email.

thx, that makes more sense.

Posted by: Aggregator | Sep 16, 2013 7:36:25 AM

@Aggregator, if it's easier in terms of consistency and keeping track, I've also seen the Tulane position advertised as essentially a law and econ gig.

Posted by: anon | Sep 15, 2013 9:44:28 PM

Quinnipiac, health law, pre-AALS interview, invitation extended 9/13

Posted by: Aggregator | Sep 15, 2013 5:02:23 PM

Folks, don't make me look this stuff up to full out the spreadsheet. I'm on the market and have a job, just like everyone else. I'll look up the Tulane ad this one time, but please don't be coy going forward. Either don't specify, or specify, but if you choose to specify, then just do so.

Every time I got an interview within minutes someone also posts the interview. Not completely sure of this but I think it is possible the ones w multiple people are listed committees picks going down the line calling people whereas ones that are strays just might be a favorite of the committee or perhaps one they reach easy consensus on, and they are still looking at other candidates,

Of course, I am not sure of my theory but it just seems that I always find that w the handful of interviews I posted, it is not a minute when I get off the phone that someone already posted!
