Hiring Plans and Hiring Committees 2022-2023

I am collecting information about (1) whether a particular school plans to hire in 2022-2023, 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 2022-2023 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 2022-2023 (this could be yes, no, maybe, or something else);
 
(c) whether your school is pursuing lateral hiring in 2022-2023 (this could be yes, no, maybe, or something else).
 
If your school does plan on pursuing hiring in 2022-2023:
 
(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; and
 
(j) the number of available faculty positions at your school.

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.)

Edited 7/19/22 to remove question (k), "whether you are interested in hiring entry-level candidates, lateral candidates, or both," because the question was already asked above in (b) and (c). If someone can figure out why this question is not a duplicate, please let me know and I will put it back.

@Anon | Aug 5, 2022 10:02:38 PM - That is very confusing! According to the AALS's webpage, "There is no Faculty Recruitment Conference in 2022."

https://www.aals.org/recruitment/current-faculty-staff/

My guess is that they have just not edited that part of their form in a while.

Does anyone know if there will be a fall hiring conference in DC this year? I thought there won't be one because of the pandemic, but when I submitted the FAR form, it said "we hope to see you in DC this fall."

The Entry-Level Hiring Process at Berkeley Law

We expect that Berkeley Law will hire at both the entry-level and at the lateral-level. For those seeking entry-level teaching positions, we encourage applying through the Association of American Law School’s Faculty Appointments Register.

It is important that our process be as transparent as possible. There are aspects of the Berkeley Law hiring process that are distinctive. Here is a brief description of the entry-level hiring process.

1. There is an entry-level sub-committee. It will read all FAR forms and entry-level applications. Members of the entry-level sub-committee will use a scoring rubric. It is helpful to our committee, although not required, for those interested in Berkeley Law to take advantage of the new option this year of uploading a diversity statement as part of the AALS submission. The expectation is that from our initial screening, we will select several dozen promising candidates for further consideration.

2. If we invite you to file an application, that means you have passed the screening stage and we are interested in your candidacy. The application process is simple; it mostly consists of submitting a resume and a diversity statement. After we receive the formal application, we can proceed in our consideration of the candidate.

3. Under California state law, we cannot consider race or gender in the hiring process. At the same time, contributions to diversity are an important consideration in our process. When we review diversity statements, we are not looking for a particular ideological commitment or background. Instead, our primary focus is whether the candidate has a commitment to helping students from a wide range of backgrounds succeed.

We hope that this makes our process more transparent, but we always are glad to answer questions and provide more information if we can be of assistance.

The University of Richmond School of Law seeks 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 students and colleagues as their own success. This year we have openings for two entry-level tenure-track professors, and we are especially looking for expertise in federal courts and in criminal procedure (especially the adjudicative side). If you have questions, feel free to email us at [email protected]

The University of Richmond, an equal opportunity employer, is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body and to modeling an inclusive campus community that values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. We strongly encourage applications that are in keeping with this commitment.

Answers to Sarah's specific questions:
(a) We're the University of Richmond -- go Spiders!
(b) We're pursuing entry-level hiring.
(c) We're also pursuing lateral hiring, but only for relatively junior laterals (i.e., recently tenured or junior-er that that).
(d) Chair for all tenure-stream hiring is Jim Gibson.
(e) Other committee members are Hank Chambers, Erin Collins, Corinna Lain, Luke Norris, and Kevin Woodson.
(f) Two teaching needs are driving our hiring this year. One is in criminal law, and particularly the bail-to-jail side of criminal procedure. The other is in fed courts, although beyond that one course we have a lot of curricular flexibility for the position.
(g) We are happy to receive packets and individualized expressions of interest at [email protected]
(h) If you’d like to reach out, just email us at [email protected]
(i) We’ll be using the AALS process to solicit applications. If you are not part of that process or have a specific question, feel free to email us at (wait for it) [email protected]
(j) We have two tenure-stream slots available.

@ Anon | Jul 25, 2022 3:36:56 AM - Yes, "Unified" means the same committee reviews entry level and lateral. I don't think it would generally mean the same committee reviews VAP applications - schools have different approaches to those, and this spreadsheet is primarily for listing committees for permanent hires - though it's not impossible that the committee would review them.

I added that column when more schools had different entry-level and lateral committees; this year it doesn't seem relevant, at least not yet....

Under the “type of committee” column, what does “unified” meaning? Does it mean that the same committee reviews VAP, fellowship, and faculty position applications?

The spreadsheet has most of the information for Chicago-Kent already. I just wanted to add:

(d) Chair: Greg Reilly
(e) Other Members: Felice Batlan, Kathy Baker, Alex Boni-Saenz, Nancy Kim, Noah Smith-Drelich

Independent of our doctrinal/tenure-track search, Chicago-Kent is also conducting a separate search for clinicians for our unique C-K Law Group. On behalf of my colleague Jon Decatorsmith, who is chairing that search, I wanted to post the full hiring announcement below because it is a unique position.

SUPERVISING CLINICAL ATTORNEY
Illinois Institute of Technology
Chicago-Kent College of Law
The C-K Law Group

The C-K Law Group of Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology, is now accepting applications for one or more full-time in-house clinical faculty members from established attorneys who are interested in combining their practices with a teaching career.

We are specifically, but not limited to, considering attorneys who practice in the following areas: Business Transactions, Real Estate, Probate and Estate Planning, Intellectual Property, Privacy and Technology, Environmental Law, and Human Rights.

The successful candidate already has a robust and transferable client base. As a clinical professor, primary duties include teaching lawyering skills to enrolled student interns, supervising their assigned client case work, and mentoring them through the myriad associated professional issues.

The attorney’s salary is negotiable and based on experience, but will be primarily determined by the amount of fees the attorney is able to generate from the clients he or she represents. The position carries University benefits including medical, group life insurance, retirement, etc.

This is an excellent opportunity for talented attorneys wishing to teach and practice in a unique in-house clinical education setting. Preference will be given to candidates who have been admitted to the Illinois Bar for a minimum of five (5) years, have a strong background in their particular practice area, and have some experience educating law students in the practice of law. Applicants should have strong academic credentials and a commitment to educating the next generation of lawyers, as well as a desire to be part of a collegial group of attorneys and faculty at the law school.

For more information, see the posting: https://iit7.peopleadmin.com/postings/7764

Illinois Institute of Technology is an EEO/AA/Title VI/Title IX/Section 504/ADA/ADEA employer; we are committed to enhancing equity, inclusion, and diversity within our community. Illinois Tech seeks applications from all individuals regardless of race, color, sex, marital status, religion, creed, national origin, disability, age, military or veteran status, sexual orientation, and/or gender identity and expression. All qualified applicants will receive equal consideration.

Open Date: July 1, 2022. Please contact and send resumes to:
