Pace University School of Law seeks to fill one tenure-track faculty position for a law professor to teach and supervise a direct representation clinic, commencing in the 2012-2013 academic year. At this time, the Law School is inclined to focus first on candidates whose experience would equip them for teaching and supervising student attorneys in one or more of our current clinical programs, see http:/www.pace.edu/school-of-law/ceneter-and-special-programs/clinics-0/john-jay-legal-services/clinics-1 However, applicants with different curricular interests will be considered.
Pace is committed to achieving completely equal opportunity in all aspects of University life. Applications are especially encouraged from people of color, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals, individuals who are differently-abled, veterans of the armed forces or national service, and anyone whose background and experience will contribute to the diversity of our faculty. Salaries and benefits, including domestic partner benefits, are commensurate with experience and performance. At Pace, all full-time tenure-track faculty have the same responsibilities and opportunities in terms of instutional governance, administrative service, and security of position. You are invited to review the relevant Faculty Regulations and Standards at http:/www.law.pace.edu/faculty/portal/promoandtenure.pdf
Candidates should have demonstrated commitment to, or records of, scholarly achievement and should be interested in enriching both our curriculum and our academic community. We are especially interested in candidates who can bring diverse viewpoints to the clinic and the classroom. While entry-level candidates will be considered, the Law School is likely to prefer candidates who already have some significant clinical teaching experience.
