VERMONT LAW SCHOOL invites applications for a full-time professor in our Legal Writing Program. The professor will begin work on July 1, 2018, with a two-year contract. This contract is renewable for another two-year term, followed by five-year renewable contracts after that. Legal Writing professors are voting members of the faculty and serve on faculty committees.

Professors in the program teach two courses, each a semester long. In the 1L course, professors design their materials around a subject drawn from their professional interest and experience. Professors abide by common course requirements, such as number of assignments and oral advocacy requirements, but beyond that each professor decides course content. In the 2L course, Appellate Advocacy, professors select cases pending before the U.S. Supreme Court for the students to research, brief, and argue in a moot court setting.

Applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to teaching legal writing and should have experience practicing law and/or clerking. Prior experience teaching legal writing is preferred.

Vermont Law School’s mission is to educate lawyers for the community and the world.
