Law School Hiring, 2013-2014, Thread Two

We invite those on the market to leave comments on this thread regarding whether they have received:

(a)  a callback from a law school and/or accepted it; or

(b) 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.

Five 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. The year's first hiring thread is here. Comments to that thread are now closed.

5. 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.

Update: We once again have an aggregator! Below is the spreadsheet, which you can view and download here. [Update: link fixed 1/2/14.]

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.

Submit any questions/comments/corrections to aalsaggregator (at) gmail (dot) com.

Has anyone heard anything regarding Wharton's business law position? And any update from those that have heard from Smeal (PSU)?

Posted by: anonymoose | Feb 11, 2014 6:08:32 PM

They've brought candidates to campus for call-backs.

Posted by: Smeal | Jan 24, 2014 6:10:44 PM

Howard made an offer yesterday for contracts/commercial law.

Posted by: DC | Jan 24, 2014 11:35:53 AM

I have had no follow-up from Smeal since the pre-Christmas telephone interview.

Posted by: Not moving to Kentucky | Jan 20, 2014 10:05:51 AM

Ted - still waiting myself. No word from Smeal (PSU) or Wharton.

Posted by: Anonymoose | Jan 18, 2014 6:53:38 AM

Any updates on the b-school vacancies?

Posted by: Ted | Jan 17, 2014 7:54:45 PM

BYU has hired someone in IP

Posted by: anon | Jan 17, 2014 11:47:40 AM

Two Indiana offers have been accepted. Both in business and/or bankruptcy.

Posted by: anon | Jan 15, 2014 12:27:34 PM

Duke is apparently just starting to conduct callbacks.

Posted by: anon | Jan 9, 2014 12:02:51 AM


The spreadsheet is now up-to-date. I've cleaned it up a bit, merging rows with duplicative information (except for dates) and adding the extra dates in a new column "Additional Info."

*Very* few callbacks/offers have areas reported -- if you know, please pass this info along. You may email me directly at

aalsaggregator (at) gmail (dot) com

if you don't want to post the info.

I have only added to the spreadsheet information that is asserted to be direct or that I otherwise can verify. I have *not* included speculation or third-hand reports. If anyone can clarify such info, please don't hesitate to email me!

Also, I'm happy to answer questions and/or take suggestions as to how this can be improved.

Posted by: AALS Aggregator | Jan 8, 2014 12:15:51 AM


I'll be helping Sarah with the aggregation for this hiring season.

I am currently working my way through the list -- please be patient! No need to tell me an area "actually was specified" -- most likely I just haven't finished aggregating everything yet. I'll try to post another comment when I do get caught up.

For those who would prefer not to post, but still want your data included, you may contact me directly at aalsaggregator (at) gmail (dot) com. All information will be kept in strict confidence.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask (publicly on here or privately by email).

Did Alabama make a crim offer? I have heard mixed reports, can anyone confirm one way or another?

Posted by: Tide of Hope | Jan 2, 2014 3:06:25 PM

Any idea what the subject matter focus was for the UNH callbacks?

Posted by: amnotyourmoose | Jan 2, 2014 2:27:35 PM

Not moving to Kentucky - I appreciate the information and best of luck with Smeal. Please keep us posted and I will do the same (assuming I hear anything from them, either way).

Posted by: anonymoose | Jan 2, 2014 10:51:56 AM

UNH hosted several callbacks in December.

Posted by: anonymous | Jan 1, 2014 10:19:48 PM

anonymoose | Dec 20, 2013 4:38:26 PM -

Sorry for the delay. Smeal interview was a phone interview. They indicated that they were reaching out to a short list to help narrow for callbacks. Topics included teaching large classes (300+) and scholarship interests. It was 20 minutes or so with a small group.

I did not apply for the Wharton job.

Posted by: Not moving to Kentucky | Dec 31, 2013 7:58:57 PM

Does anyone know of callbacks or offers in tax?

Posted by: Anony Mouse | Dec 21, 2013 12:04:14 PM

The OSU hire is for real, in IP.

Posted by: Anon | Dec 21, 2013 9:44:10 AM

I've heard that Drexel made an offer. I don't know if it's been accepted and don't know the area. But, if you're waiting on Drexel, you might want to check in.

Posted by: anon | Dec 21, 2013 9:06:35 AM

word on the street is that Ohio State has made an offer that has been accepted. (This is 2nd hand. I'm not sure of the area.)

Posted by: anon | Dec 20, 2013 4:55:12 PM

Not moving to Kentucky - was the Smeal interview over the phone? Any additional color is appreciated. Any word from Wharton?

Posted by: anonymoose | Dec 20, 2013 4:38:26 PM

Penn State's Smeal College of Business - First round interview (contacted earlier this week and interviewed today)

Cleveland-Marshall - callback offered a few weeks ago. scheduled for January.

Posted by: Not moving to Kentucky | Dec 20, 2013 3:36:27 PM

NYU clinical ding

Posted by: Candidate | Dec 16, 2013 3:50:15 PM

Sorry, WY has made an energy law offer. Not sure about the other committee.

Posted by: anon | Dec 16, 2013 3:05:05 PM


Posted by: Anonandonandon | Dec 16, 2013 1:42:34 PM

Are Arizona's offers entry-level or lateral?

Posted by: Anon | Dec 14, 2013 1:41:35 PM

Arizona has made offers

Posted by: Anonandonandon | Dec 14, 2013 9:12:41 AM

Wyoming had two hiring committees, one for several 'normal' postings and another committee for their energy law related posting. Which committee is acting? Both?

Posted by: anon | Dec 14, 2013 2:18:03 AM

Nice GW ding. Didn't get a callback.

Posted by: Anon | Dec 13, 2013 4:14:59 PM

And do you know the area(s) for Wyoming?

Posted by: anon0 | Dec 13, 2013 1:43:15 PM

Do you know the areas for Colorado and UConn?

Posted by: anon | Dec 13, 2013 1:07:09 PM

UConn made an offer.

Posted by: anon | Dec 13, 2013 11:12:54 AM

UConn made an offer.

Posted by: anon | Dec 13, 2013 11:12:38 AM

Wyoming has had callbacks and made at least one offer.

Posted by: anon | Dec 13, 2013 5:31:12 AM

Wyoming sent out requests for applicant EEO forms several weeks ago.

Posted by: anonanon | Dec 12, 2013 7:20:17 PM

Colorado's faculty voted to give FOUR entry level offers today. At least one non-elite school is obviously in fantastic financial shape. Either that or they're totally irresponsible . . .

Posted by: Inside Info | Dec 12, 2013 6:52:45 PM

Any news on business law positions at B-schools, specifically Wharton and Smeal (PSU)?

Posted by: anonymoose | Dec 12, 2013 3:36:51 PM

Ding from Missouri a few weeks ago (out of AALS)

Posted by: anon | Dec 12, 2013 12:21:38 PM

Colorado did a bunch of callbacks and is voting on whether to make offers to a bunch of people today.

Posted by: Inside Info | Dec 12, 2013 11:20:12 AM

Has anyone heard from Wyoming one way or another (post-AALS)?

Posted by: anon0 | Dec 12, 2013 11:03:30 AM

Has Alabama made any offers? For crim?

Posted by: anon | Dec 11, 2013 2:53:56 PM

How about Missouri?

Posted by: B | Dec 11, 2013 12:36:17 PM

Did UConn make an offer?

Posted by: anon | Dec 7, 2013 3:17:36 PM

Concordia has had callbacks and issued offers.

Posted by: Second Time | Dec 5, 2013 12:26:37 PM

Concordia interviewed at aals. no idea about callbacks.

Posted by: anon | Dec 5, 2013 11:48:52 AM

Dec. 5 @ 9:50am -- re Concordia: is that a yes to an aals interview, or to a callback interview (or both)? Thanks.

Posted by: anon4 | Dec 5, 2013 10:06:49 AM

Dec 5 1:11am - Colorado interviewed me at aals.
Dec 5 9:31am - yes, Concordia did (though not me).

Posted by: anon | Dec 5, 2013 9:50:57 AM

Did Concordia (Boise) ever interview?

Posted by: anon4 | Dec 5, 2013 9:31:50 AM

I'm pretty sure Colorado didn't.

Posted by: anon3 | Dec 5, 2013 1:11:49 AM

Did Wyoming or Colorado ever interview?

Posted by: anon | Dec 5, 2013 12:13:44 AM

It looks like Harvard has scheduled at least three job talks for mid-December: http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/faculty-workshops/faculty-workshops.html

Posted by: anon | Dec 3, 2013 7:40:47 AM

Florida A&M made callback invitations as early as the first week after the FRC.

Posted by: Anon | Dec 3, 2013 5:13:36 AM

In addition to FSU and Florida, does anyone know what's going on with the other Florida schools - like the Miami schools, Florida A&M, or Stetson? Did any of them do callbacks or make offers?

Posted by: anon | Dec 1, 2013 11:03:13 PM

In response to a question on the other thread: Richmond has made at least one offer.

Posted by: anon | Nov 29, 2013 7:24:02 PM

Texas Southern has almost completed its callbacks.

Posted by: anon | Nov 22, 2013 9:14:20 PM

Harvard has invited at least one person back for a full job talk.

Posted by: anon | Nov 21, 2013 9:50:13 AM

Any other updates? It's been really quiet around here.

Posted by: anon1 | Nov 21, 2013 2:11:55 AM

FSU, Florida, and Baltimore have all made offers--not to me, though. Also, I heard that the FSU and Florida offers are exploding offers with relatively short fuses.

Posted by: Anon | Nov 19, 2013 3:16:05 PM

Vanderbilt, too, posts its job talks on its workshop calendar.
