Lecturer - JD/LLM Program/Experiential Education - School of Law
Berkeley Law is generating an applicant pool of qualified instructors should openings arise.
Berkeley Law is one of the premier law schools in the United States. Our programs are demanding, engaging, hands-on, and selective. We expect our faculty and lecturers to demonstrate a strong commitment to academic rigor and intellectual diversity.
The J.D. and LL.M. programs are host to a diverse and constantly evolving curriculum. Hundreds of courses are offered, including dozens in our top-ranked Law and Technology, International Law, Social Justice, and Environmental Law programs.
Within the Experiential Education curriculum, instructors teach courses in litigation and transactional lawyering skills, including negotiation, pre-trial practice, civil trial practice, criminal trial practice, appellate advocacy, legal writing, drafting, legal research, alternative dispute resolution, oral advocacy, mediation, and other related professional practice education. These courses are taught experientially, using extensive simulation, video, and other learning by doing pedagogies.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include holding office hours, assessing student work and assigning grades, advising students, identifying and preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and maintaining a course website.
Completed applications will be reviewed when openings arise. Appointments for the fall semester are usually reviewed in January and for the spring semester in July.
Applicants who remain interested in consideration after the final deadline will need to submit a new application.
UC Lecturers and Teachers of Special Programs are academic appointees in an organized bargaining unit and are exclusively represented by American Federation of Teachers - Unit 18.
Berkeley Law is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching.
