Legal Studies is an interdisciplinary undergraduate major that engages the meanings, values, practices, and institutions of law and legality. The faculty of Berkeley Law’s Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program (JSP) has primary responsibility for the Legal Studies program at UC Berkeley. JSP faculty and other Law faculty teach a curriculum that examines how law shapes, and is shaped by, political, economic, and cultural forces. The major is designed to stimulate critical understanding of and inquiry about the theoretical frameworks, historical dynamics, and cultural embeddedness of law. Please see http://legalstudies.berkeley.edu for details of the curriculum.

General Duties: In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and maintaining a course website.

Basic qualifications Ph.D., J.D., or equivalent postgraduate international degree, and experience teaching at the postsecondary level, are required at the time of application.

Expertise in one or more areas of the legal studies curriculum (I. Crime, Law and Social Control; II. Law and Culture; III. Law and Markets; IV. Law, Rights, and Social Change; V. Law and Sovereignty), and a record of active research and publication in the field of Legal Studies.

Salary: Our starting annual full-time salary is $54,738, prorated according to teaching workload. Credit may be given to prior college-level teaching experience (not including graduate student or summer session teaching).
