Faculty Hiring at Richmond Law

Richmond Law is hiring! We are in the market for up to six new faculty members this year--3 tenure-track positions in a variety of areas, an endowed joint position with our leadership school, and directorships for new programs in professional identity formation and legal innovation.  The full ad is below the break:

The University of Richmond School of Law seeks top-notch scholars who are passionate about their teaching and research, who will thrive in an environment of engaged faculty, and who view the success of their colleagues and students as their own success.  This year we have openings for as many as three entry-level tenure-track professors.  We are open to a range of areas of interest but are especially looking for expertise in criminal law and procedure, critical legal studies, immigration, legislation and regulation, corporate law, cybersecurity, and data analytics/empirical legal studies.

We are also working with the Jepson School of Leadership Studies at the University of Richmond to fill the Tyler Haynes Interdisciplinary Professorship.  For this endowed professorship, we seek candidates with a distinguished record of scholarship and teaching who would be appointed as a tenured faculty member and would teach in both schools.  We are especially interested in candidates whose research addresses areas of applied law and leadership, including criminal justice, housing, immigration, educational policy, health care, and institutional design and analysis.  While we are open to candidates with either a J.D. or Ph.D., the ideal candidate will be a full professor with both.

Finally, we are looking to hire directors for two new signature programs—one in the area of professional identity formation and one in the area of legal innovation and entrepreneurship.  These directors will oversee the design and implementation of each program, as well as teach courses and direct co-curricular opportunities related to the program.

The University of Richmond, an equal opportunity employer, is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body and to supporting an inclusive campus community.  Applications from candidates who will contribute to these goals are strongly encouraged. 

Inquiries regarding entry-level hiring should be directed to Professor Jim Gibson at [email protected].  Inquiries regarding the Haynes Professorship should be directed to [email protected]. Inquiries regarding the professional identity formation and legal innovation positions should be directed to Professor Jessica Erickson at [email protected].
