DRAKE UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track position as Assistant/Associate/Professor of Law in the field of Agricultural Law and Director of the Drake Agricultural Law Center beginning in the fall of 2019. Applicants must hold a J.D. degree (or the equivalent) and should have outstanding records of accomplishment in scholarship, teaching, and service as well as substantial practice experience.

The successful candidate will teach agricultural law courses and serve as the Director of the Drake Agricultural Law Center. Drake was the first American law school to offer a J.D. specialization in agricultural law, offering courses not only on agricultural and food law but also on agriculture’s effect on social, economic, and political systems. The student-published Drake Journal of Agricultural Law has been a leading legal journal focused solely on these issues for more than 20 years.

Founded in 1983, the Agricultural Law Center provides opportunities for students to explore how the legal system impacts the global food system and the agricultural sector’s ability to produce, market, and use agricultural products. The Center promotes and supports research and scholarship and has hosted distinguished agricultural law scholars from all over the country and the world to teach students and share their unique cultural perspective on food and agricultural law. Students can earn a Food and Agricultural Law Certificate by completing 21 credits of coursework, a major legal research and writing project, and an internship.

The Agricultural Law Center also provides information and resources for American farmers, landowners, and agricultural entrepreneurs to help these key agriculture stakeholders make profitable and sustainable decisions regarding our nation’s land and agricultural production.

Applicants with backgrounds in all areas of Agricultural Law are welcome. Over 85% of Iowa’s land is used for agriculture. Drake’s location in central Iowa places it at the heart of a state that leads in production of soybeans, corn, eggs, and pork.

Qualified candidates should apply via Hiretouch. https://drake.hiretouch.com/job-details?jobID=50195&job=professor-of-law-director-of-the-drake-agricultural-law-center-999731
Confidential review of applications will begin in August 2018. Applications (including a letter of interest, a complete CV, teaching evaluations (if available) and the names and addresses of at least three references) should be included.
