UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA, LAS VEGAS WILLIAM S. BOYD SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for one or more tenure-track or tenured faculty positions beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year.  We seek candidates with excellent academic records and experience and who have a strong commitment to scholarship and teaching. 

We have a particular need for a clinical faculty member to join our outstanding clinical program.  The Thomas & Mack Legal Clinic is collaborative and aims to provide an integrated academic and practice-based educational experience to students, provide service to communities in need of legal assistance, and promote research and policy related to the intersection of law and society.  The Thomas & Mack Clinic has programs in six different areas: Appellate, Education Advocacy, Family Justice, Immigration, Innocence, and Juvenile Justice. 

We invite applications from dynamic scholar-clinicians who would complement our current clinical programs, or who would be able to develop new clinical offerings. We have a particular interest in expanding our clinical offerings to include a transactional, consumer law or community development clinic.

The William S. Boyd School of Law has an integrated tenure track in which faculty who teach in the clinic share equal status with other faculty.  Clinical faculty also teach non-clinical courses; receive generous support for summer research and student research assistants; and are eligible to apply for semester-long research leaves every third year.  The clinical program and law school are the beneficiaries of an active and engaged legal community, who look to the law school for leadership and partnership in addressing the community’s legal and policy needs.   

Candidates must have earned a JD from an ABA-accredited law school or an equivalent degree.  Applicants for Full Professor must have records of substantial accomplishment and qualifications sufficient to be awarded tenure.  Salary will be competitive, based on experience.  The Appointments Committee will begin reviewing applications immediately.
