WASHBURN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW is hiring a Tenure-Track Associate Professor of Law for its Family Justice and Immigration Clinic.
WASHBURN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW invites applicants for a tenured/tenure-track position in the Washburn Law Clinic and to teach complementary doctrinal courses, beginning in the 2024-2025 academic year. We are particularly interested in applicants qualified to teach in a family, immigration, and juvenile law clinic, but all subject areas will be considered. Washburn Law has a unitary tenure track with scholarship support including summer writing stipends, year-round research assistants, and funding for travel to conferences.
Washburn’s law school moved into a state-of-the art new building in July 2023 and is located blocks from the historic state capitol. Topeka features affordable housing; beautiful, historic neighborhoods with well-maintained parks; and a nationally recognized public library. It is also the home of the Brown v. Board of Education National Historical Site.
Washburn is dedicated to recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty, staff, and student body and cultivating a vibrant and inclusive working environment and curriculum. We offer competitive wages, an excellent benefits program, supportive leadership team, and a healthy work/life balance.
Required qualifications include a JD degree from an ABA accredited law school; commitment to clinical legal education, institutional service, and developing inclusive teaching practices; and potential for scholarship. Candidates must have a Kansas bar license or be eligible for a restricted license to practice in clinic, which does not require the Kansas bar exam.
Review of applications will begin on August 21. For full position description and information on how to apply, visit:
