The University of Kentucky College of Law invites applications for a full-time faculty position to teach in the law school’s Legal Research and Writing program beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year. A successful candidate will teach two or more courses in the Legal Research and Writing program, including at least one section of the legal research and writing course for first-year law students (approximately 20 students per section). The course for first-year law students is a year-long, four-credit course that introduces students to legal writing, analysis, and research. Law librarians teach the research component of the course, which is approximately 1 of the 4 credits. Thus, the new faculty member must be able to work collaboratively with other faculty involved in the Legal Research and Writing program.

The position offers an initial contract as Assistant Professor of Legal Research and Writing (non tenure eligible) for a term not to exceed three years. After the initial appointment period, the successful candidate will be eligible for a renewable, five-year appointment. The salary will be commensurate with experience. The appointment is a nine-month, academic year appointment. Faculty members in the Legal Research and Writing program receive a Faculty Development Allowance for expenses related to professional development efforts, including travel and registration expenses associated with academic conferences. They are also eligible to receive grants for summer research.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, C.V. or resume, and writing sample. Please also include the names and contact information for at least three references when prompted in the application. This information may be used to solicit reference letters from your references within the employment system.

Applications will be accepted until December 22, 2017, and will be reviewed beginning January 2, 2018. For further information, please contact Scott R. Bauries, Chair of the Appointments Committee, at
