Job Description

The University of Oregon School of Law is seeking applications for two visiting Legal Research and Writing faculty members in academic year 2021-22. We invite applications from those who presently have tenured or career positions as Legal Writing faculty for a visiting professor position. We also invite applications from those who plan to enter the entry-level job market in the near future for a visiting assistant professor (VAP) position.  Both positions will run from July 16, 2021 to May 15, 2022.  The VAP position will be a one-year contract with the expectation of renewal for a second year based on performance.

 The University of Oregon is a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU), and is a major research university committed to combining high level research with strong undergraduate and graduate teaching. The School of Law is an ABA accredited law school and Oregon’s only public law school, made up of three graduate degree programs and an undergraduate legal studies program.

 Applicants for this position should have a strong record of academic achievement; excellent skills in legal writing, research, and oral communication; a J.D. or its equivalent; and at least two years of post-law school legal experience.  Applicants should have either teaching experience or a demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching.  Because of the level of coordination and collaboration enjoyed by the LRW program, candidates should possess characteristics that will contribute to LRW faculty dynamics.  The successful candidate will have the ability to work effectively with faculty, staff, and students from a variety of backgrounds.

 The University of Oregon is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution committed to cultural diversity and compliance with the ADA.  The University encourages all qualified individuals to apply, and does not discriminate on the basis of any protected status, including veteran and disability status. 

For full consideration, application materials should be submitted by February 17, 2021, although submissions will be accepted until the positions are filled.  Applicants should submit a letter of interest (please indicate your interest in either the visiting professor or VAP position), a current resume, and references via MyTracks:  https://careers.uoregon.edu/en-us/job/526020/pro-tempore-and-visiting-faculty-open-pool.
