THE CHARLOTTE SCHOOL OF LAW seeks a full-time law professor to develop a community economic development program. The person selected will teach our existing Entrepreneurial and Non-Profit Clinic, along with a related business law course, and oversee the development of transactional legal clinics in surrounding underserved communities with institutional partners. The focus of these clinics will depend on legal services gaps that have significant economic impact.
Charlotte is North Carolina’s most populous cityundefineda dynamic community that combines warm Southern hospitality with a modern, world-class city. The mission of the Charlotte School of Law is to provide a legal education that is student-centered, facilitates practice readiness, fosters personal integrity, and serves underserved communities. We value motivation through inspiration, emotional intelligence (“EQ”) as much as IQ, continuous improvement, measured outcomes, team goals, interdependence, and the creation of best practices.
We seek candidates with distinguished academic records, excellent written and oral communication skills, practice and teaching experience, as well as a strong commitment to public interest law and clinical legal education. The successful candidate will preferably begin January 2012. He or she will join a growing faculty dedicated to experiential learning integrated throughout the curriculum and an academic team that includes a Director of Experiential Learning and three additional full-time professors who teach in and run clinics, an externship program and a pro bono program. We also have adjunct professors who teach clinics.
Applicants should have at least 5 years of experience in a transactional practice, preferably with some public interest, non-profit or community advocacy. All applicants must be members of the North Carolina bar, be eligible for reciprocity or be willing to take the NC bar exam in Feb. 2012. We are looking for a candidate who is the best fit for this faculty position and, thus, the position may be filled by a candidate who is interested in either a tenure track or a non-tenure-track faculty appointment, subject to long-term contract renewal, with a ten or eleven month contract. All full-time faculty have full faculty voting rights, except in the area of promotion and tenure. Opportunity for research and scholarship development is available.
Charlotte School of Law is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to developing a well-qualified and diverse faculty. The school is a member of the InfiLaw System, which includes Florida Coastal School of Law and Phoenix School of Law.
