The Faculty of Law at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) invites applications from candidates with a strong commitment to innovation and excellence in teaching and research as well as collegial interaction for tenure-track appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor or tenured appointments at the rank of Associate or Full Professor, depending on qualifications and experience. A Limited Term appointment may also be considered, rank to be determined by qualifications and experience.

It also houses a brand new law library. We further benefit from the active participation of highly talented lawyers and judges as sessional lecturers, moot coaches and mentors. TRU Law students have already embarked upon interesting and varied career paths, and virtually 100% of the students from our 2014, 2015 and 2015 graduating classes who were known to be seeking articles were successful. Our recent 2017 graduates are on a similar path.
