Hiring Plans and Hiring Committees 2021-2022

I am collecting information about (1) whether a particular school plans to hire in 2021-2022, and (2) if so, information about the school's hiring committee and hiring interests.

Please share in the comments the following information related to the 2021-2022 law school faculty hiring season. (A spreadsheet is below. You cannot edit the spreadsheet directly.)

First:
 
(a) your school;
 
(b) whether your school is pursuing entry-level hiring in 2021-2022 (this could be yes, no, maybe, or something else);
 
(c) whether your school is pursuing lateral hiring in 2021-2022 (this could be yes, no, maybe, or something else).
 
If your school does plan on pursuing hiring in 2021-2022:
 
(d) 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);
 
(e) other members of your hiring committee (again, please note if there is a distinction between entry level and lateral committees); and
 
(f) 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:

(g) 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); 
 
(h) your committee's preferred way to be contacted (email, snail-mail, or phone); 
 
(i) the website, if any, that candidates should use to obtain information about the position or to apply;
 
(j) the number of available faculty positions at your school; and
 
(k) 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.)

Update, 8/11/2021: My understanding is that there is a complete collection of this information that is generated privately by one or more individual law schools. (I don't have access to this complete collection of information.) The purpose of this post and the accompanying spreadsheet is to allow the information to be accessible to anyone, regardless of where they happened to go to law school or do their fellowship.

Candidates must have a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree, and a distinguished academic record.

Candidates for the position, however, need not focus centrally on these themes in their work.

The Chair may be of particular interest to scholars whose research examines ethics, professionalism, complex litigation, judging, dispute resolution, representation of corporate entities, implications of AI and big data for the profession and legal practice, and other related areas. Nevertheless, distinguished scholars with an interest in ethics and professionalism are encouraged to apply, regardless of their area of specialization. Previous chairholders include scholars in the fields of products liability, feminist theory, law and religion, family law, and federal housing policy.

Call for diversity.

I am a male Asian American applicant, and I would like to ask the appointments committees to respect diversity and not unduly scrutinize Asian candidates, particularly male Asian candidates.

During my application process, I have heard comments from the committee members that I have "too much experience" for entry level positions (since when experience is a penalty, rather than a strength?) and I might fit the hiring areas, but I will not be considered since I also have expertise overlapping with others' on the faculty (so additional expertise is a reason to disqualify otherwise good candidates???)

All this sounds unduly scrutinizing and frankly an excuse to exclude otherwise well qualified Asian candidates. Scrutiny seems worse for male Asian candidates.

Asian Americans remain the least represented group on law school faculties--take a look at your own faculty. Please stop scrutinizing male Asian candidates and start treating them fairly.

Can we delete comments here (like EliteT1's -- and mine) that are orthogonal to the information-gathering purpose of this thread?

As an aside, I wonder how many of those decrying the focus on "elite" schools and diversity are themselves white. I also wonder how many of these people attended elite schools. There is a real self-serving feel to these criticisms, in part because many "elite" schools are significantly more racially diverse than average. Yale is 40% non-white. Stanford is 35%. Georgia, on the other hand, is only about 20% non-white, despite being the flagship state school of a state that is 45% non-white. "Elite" schools should be more racially diverse, absolutely. So should non-elite schools. With some notable exceptions (Howard, FIU, etc.), hiring more tenure-track candidates who graduated from "non-elite" schools--whatever that means--may do little to increase the racial diversity of law school faculties.

That is to say, there are good reasons to "diversify" law school hiring away from Yale in particular. I'm not sure that racial (or even socioeconomic) diversity is really one of them.

“ Update, 8/11/2021: My understanding is that there is a complete collection of this information that is generated privately by one or more individual law schools. (I don't have access to this complete collection of information.) The purpose of this post and the accompanying spreadsheet is to allow the information to be accessible to anyone, regardless of where they happened to go to law school or do their fellowship.”

Thank you for saying this. The shadow spreadsheets are an unfair advantage to already privileged candidates. Perpetuates the cycle of hiring only “elite” candidates from “elite” schools. Surprise surprise, we end up with diversity problems in law school hiring.

The “elite” schools provide so many things to faculty candidates others are not able to access. Career officers who know faculty hiring, formal review of application materials, lookbooks sent out to hiring schools, a Dean or senior faculty to make personal calls…

No wonder we end up with the diversity problems we have.

A friendly request: for schools that are doing lateral hiring, it would be helpful to know more about item (g) in the list--how you wish to learn of lateral candidates' interest.

Possibilities include (1) the FAR, (2) a direct expression of interest by the lateral candidate, and (3) no direct contact from the lateral candidate ("we like to find people ourselves" or "have a senior person contact us"). Few lateral candidates use (1); a de facto requirement of (3) is sort of folklore at this point (and unclear if still accurate). Information about genuine openness to (2) would be especially useful.

To state the obvious, opacity around lateral hiring practices is not a recipe for diversifying the faculty. More generally, it seems to leave a lot of potential matches unexplored.

A non-profit established in 1924, CWSL is an ABA accredited and AALS member with the distinction of being San Diego’s oldest law school. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our student body: 50% of this year’s incoming students are from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We are likewise committed to having a faculty that reflects our student body and community. By our continuing to rethink the status quo in legal education – balancing a rigorous practical education with cutting edge scholarship and community service – CWSL graduates have earned a reputation for their manifest practice-readiness.

CWSL is located in downtown San Diego, literally overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A city of breathtaking beauty, we have perfect weather, miles of beaches, plus nearby mountains and desert. We are a family-friendly, diverse city with light city traffic and walkable neighborhoods.

Application materials should include a cover letter, C.V., research agenda, and a diversity statement that addresses how you will contribute to our goal of building a diverse faculty. Please direct application materials and questions to the chair of the Appointments Committee, Professor Daniel Yeager, at [email protected]
