Harvard Law School is soliciting applications for the position of Visiting Assistant Professor beginning with the 2011-2012 academic year. We seek applicants with substantial legal practice experience — a minimum of three years in government, non-profit, or private practice, not including time spent as a law clerk — who have a strong interest in an academic career, but who have not yet completed enough scholarly work to make a regular tenure-track appointment possible.
Appointments will be for a term of two years. Each appointee will teach a regular course load and will be expected to produce one or more substantial pieces of scholarship. During the second year of the appointment, he or she will likely enter the tenure-track teaching market.
Each Visiting Assistant Professor will have access to the full range of resources offered by Harvard University. He or she will be provided a private office, library privileges, health benefits, a research budget, a budget for travel, and an annual salary of $125,000.
Applications must be received by January 3, 2012. Each application should include the following materials:
