Hiring Committees 2018-2019

Please share in the comments the following information related to the 2018-2019 law school faculty hiring season:

(a) your school;
(b) the chair of your hiring committee (please note if you have different chairs for entry level and lateral candidates--we hope that this information will be useful for both entry level and lateral candidates);
(c) other members of your hiring committee (again, please note if there is a distinction between entry level and lateral committees); and
(d) any particular subject areas in which your school is looking to hire.

Additionally, if you would like to share the following information, candidates might find it helpful to know:

(e) your committee's feeling about packets/individualized expressions of interest (affirmatively want to receive them, affirmatively don't want to receive them, or don't care one way or the other); 
(f) your committee's preferred way to be contacted (email, snail-mail, or phone); 
(g) the website, if any, that candidates should use to obtain information about the position or to apply;
(h) the number of available faculty positions at your school; and
(i) whether you are interested in hiring entry-level candidates, lateral candidates, or both.

I will gather all this information in a downloadable, sortable spreadsheet. (Click on that link to access the spreadsheet and download it; you can also scroll through the embedded version below.)

If you would like to reach me for some reason (e.g., you would prefer not to post your committee information in the comments but would rather email me directly), my email address is sarah dot lawsky (at) law dot northwestern dot edu.

Remember, you cannot edit the spreadsheet directly. The only way to add something to the spreadsheet is to put the information in the comments or email me directly, and I will edit the spreadsheet.

Originally posted July 11, 2018; updated August 10, 2018, to reflect that the spreadsheet now includes (1) website links and (2) whether the committee is interested in entry level candidates, lateral candidates, or both.

Anyone know who's on the appts committee at The University of Utah?

Posted by: Prof | Oct 21, 2018 4:54:47 PM

clinicalanon, in my experience it's not standardized. Some schools do AALS Interviews, but those that do also are likely to interview by Skype. Most schools will do a first round interview in the fall at some point, with some schools hoping to wrap clinical hiring before the end of fall term and others doing callbacks early in the spring term (potentially tied to rankings, as with the doctrinal hiring).

For a callback, it is generally similar to the doctrinal callbacks except that the content of the job talk might be different, potentially depending on whether the school hires clinicians on the tenure track or on the separate "promotion towards presumptively renewable" track. You might have to present a standard academic paper, just like a doctrinal candidate. You might have to present a "clinic design" talk where you discuss your goals for a clinic, teaching pedagogy, etc. You might have to do both. It really depends on the school and it's something that should come up during the callback scheduling phase.

Posted by: anon | Oct 18, 2018 1:45:29 PM

Curious about the process for clinical positions. Some schools use AALS to fill these openings and others don't. Would the timing for interviewing and offering jobs be the same? Would there be an expectation about presenting a job talk paper for a callback? Any other thoughts?
