The University of Windsor’s Faculty of Law invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor commencing July 1, 2019 in all areas of law. Applications for lateral hires at the rank of Associate Professor are also welcome. This position is subject to final budgetary approval.

We especially encourage applications from those whose teaching and research focus on subjects taught in the mandatory curriculum, (including Indigenous legal traditions and criminal, contract, tort or constitutional law) as well as family law, tax law, trade law, administrative law, and client-facing theory and practice. We welcome applications from candidates who bring social justice, critical, transnational and/or interdisciplinary perspectives to their research and teaching.

With over 600 students, 31 faculty members, and 7,000 graduates, Windsor Law provides students with a rigorous legal education in a supportive and inclusive community environment. A comprehensive, people-centred curriculum combined with experiential learning is at the heart of the Windsor Law experience. Students participate in a variety of clinical and outreach programs, including two legal aid clinics and an intellectual property law clinic. In addition to the Canadian J.D., Windsor Law offers a comparative Canadian and American dual-degree program with the University of Detroit Mercy, allowing students to obtain in three years the degrees necessary for practice on both sides of the border. Students may also choose combined J.D./M.S.W. and J.D./M.B.A. degrees with Windsor’s School of Social Work and Odette School of Business, as well as a research-based LL.M. program. The Faculty is celebrating 50 years of teaching, research, advocacy and service throughout 2018.

Access to justice and transnational law are an integral part of Windsor Law’s identity and culture. We are dedicated to making access to legal education, the legal system and, ultimately, access to justice, more attainable for all members of society. Our unique location at the Canada-U.S. border opens up teaching, research, clinical and experiential opportunities that cannot be replicated elsewhere. For more information, visit the website at

The Faculty of Law is seeking candidates with a graduate degree in law or equivalent experience beyond the first law degree who have a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching, and will be a collaborative colleague contributing to the life and growth of the Faculty.
