    Position Title:

    Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Patrick J. McDonough Director of Business Law Practicum, Loyola Law School-Los Angeles

    Position Summary:

    Loyola Law School-Los Angeles invites applications for the position of Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Patrick J. McDonough Director of the Business Law Practicum, a non-tenure track faculty position. The initial appointment as Associate Professor and Director of the Business Law Practicum is for two years and may be renewed for unlimited successive five-year periods. The objective of the Director of the Business Law Practicum is to further develop and enhance Loyola’s transactional business law curriculum, which integrates theory and practice to best prepare law students for the types of projects and challenges they will confront as lawyers in the first year of a transactional practice. For more information on this innovative curricular program for students who intend to practice as transactional lawyers, please visit its website at http://www.lls.edu/businesslaw/.

    Position Description:

    This academic and administrative position includes the following responsibilities:

    • Teach two sections of Business Planning, the capstone course of the Business Law Practicum, which uses a simulated deal format to examine the organization and financing of a growth-oriented start-up business;
    • Recruit, train, supervise, and mentor experienced lawyers who will teach additional sections of Business Planning as adjunct faculty;
    • Provide teaching support and conduct regular evaluations of adjunct faculty teaching Business Planning and communicate this feedback to the Associate Dean to maintain high standards of teaching in all sections of the Business Planning course;
    • Coordinate with the Associate Dean to schedule sufficient sections to accommodate student demand for the course (presently seven sections are offered each academic year);
    • Engage in outreach to students (both current and prospective) as well as law firms and other prospective employers to promote the Business Law Practicum;
    • Maintain and expand the Business Law Practicum website;
    • Collaborate with LLS faculty who teach business law-related subjects to expand opportunities for students to enroll in classes that offer experiential learning by creating new courses that use a simulated deal format;
    • Serve as advisor to students interested in (or participating in) the Corporate Law Concentration or the Law & Entrepreneurship Concentration. For more information regarding these two concentrations, go to

    http://www.lls.edu/academics/concentrations/corporatelaw/ and

    http://www.lls.edu/academics/concentrations/lawentrepreneurship/; and

    Requisite Qualifications:

    Applicants are expected to have a distinguished academic background, including a J.D. from an accredited law school, and to have practiced corporate transactional law at a sophisticated level for at least eight to ten years, with extensive experience in venture capital financing transactions, equity incentive arrangements, and mergers and acquisitions, and preferably strong familiarity with both California and Delaware law. Applicants with prior teaching experience are strongly preferred. A significant element of the student experience in enrolling in courses offered in the Business Law Practicum is the opportunity that such classes provide for law students to receive detailed and highly-individualized feedback from the professor on their written work product in a manner that is consistent with what an experienced supervising attorney would provide to junior associates. As a result, extensive experience in supervising and managing junior transactional attorneys is an important aspect of an outstanding candidate’s background, as well as the demonstrated ability to offer professional development guidance to junior associates. Candidates who are licensed to practice law in California are strongly preferred. Given the administrative responsibilities associated with the position of Director of the Business Law Practicum, meaningful administrative or managerial experience is also preferred.

    Application Process:

    To apply for the position, applicants are requested to submit a cover letter including a description of their experience and qualifications, as well as a resume and three professional references who can comment on the applicant’s experience and ability to meet the requirements of this position. Applications should be submitted electronically at www.jobs.lmu.edu. Any questions should be addressed to mickie.okamoto-tsudama@lls.edu. Salary is commensurate with experience. Loyola Law School welcomes applications from diversity candidates, and others whose background may contribute to faculty diversity.

    Application Deadline:

    Applications will be accepted until November 1, 2014.
