The University of South Carolina School of Law is hiring for two tenure-track clinical professors. We are looking for outstanding candidates interested in developing their own clinic, who are committed to teaching excellence, and who show scholarly promise. We are truly open to a variety of subject areas and would love proposals from candidates. Please note that clinical professors are tenure-track, and that we invite applications from entry-level candidates, candidates who have a non-tenure track position and who wish to switch to a tenure-track job, and candidates who have completed their first or second year of teaching and are interested in exploring new opportunities.
We will be at the AALS hiring conference in DC, and applicants can apply through the FAR process. Anyone who is interested may also contact me directly – I am on the hiring committee -- or apply directly to the full committee (see information in the formal posting below). Here is the full, formal posting:
The University of South Carolina School of Law invites applications for tenured, tenure-track, or visiting faculty positions to begin fall semester 2016. Candidates should have a juris doctorate or equivalent degree. Additionally, a successful applicant should have a record of excellence in academia or in practice, the potential to be an outstanding teacher, and demonstrable scholarly promise. Although the School of Law is especially interested in candidates who are qualified to teach in the areas of taxation, clinical legal education, environmental law and small business, we are equally interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity of our law school community whose teaching interests may fall outside of these areas. Interested persons should send a resume, references, and subject area preferences to Prof. Eboni Nelson, Chair, Faculty Selection Committee, c/o Kim Fanning, University of South Carolina School of Law, 701 S. Main St., Columbia, SC 29208 or, by email, to HIRE2016@LAW.SC.EDU (electronic submissions preferred).
The University of South Carolina is committed to a diverse faculty, staff, and student body. We encourage applications from women, minorities, persons with disabilities, and others whose background, experience, and viewpoints contribute to the diversity of our institution.
