CAMPBELL UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for three, full-time, tenure-track faculty positions to commence in the Fall Semester 2013. Primary curricular needs include UCC/commercial law (e.g., Sales, Secured Transactions, and Payment Systems), business law (e.g., Business Organizations, Corporate Finance, Mergers & Acquisitions, and Securities Regulation), and evidence. Candidates should have excellent academic credentials and a proven record of (or demonstrated potential for) outstanding classroom teaching and scholarship. Both lateral and entry level candidates will be considered.
The School of Law relocated to a new facility in downtown Raleigh in September 2009 (the university’s primary campus is in Buies Creek, a rural community thirty miles south of Raleigh). The law school’s new capital-city location provides its approximately 475 students with a wealth of opportunities that enrich their educational experience. Raleigh, along with the Research Triangle area, is repeatedly cited in national surveys as one of the best areas for starting a new career or business, for excellence in education (from public schools to post-graduate studies), and for enjoyable quality of life.
Campbell University’s mission is to graduate students with exemplary academic and professional skills who are prepared for purposeful lives and meaningful service. The University is informed and inspired to a great extent by three theological and biblical presuppositions: learning is appointed and conserved by God as essential to the fulfillment of human destiny; in Christ all things consist and find ultimate unity; and the Kingdom of God in this world is rooted and grounded in Christian community.
Consistent with the University’s mission, the School of Law is a highly demanding, purposely small, intensely personal community of faculty and students whose aim, guided by transcendent values, is to develop lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others, and to create a more just society. To that end, the law school (1) offers an academic program that is highly demanding, (2) brings together the theoretical and practical to produce thoughtful and talented lawyers, (3) utilizes the talents of a faculty that is profoundly committed to students and teaching, (4) presents the practice of law as a way to make a difference by serving others, and (5) offers a Christian perspective on law and justice.
Applicants should provide a resume and a cover letter, addressing the applicant’s interest in and qualifications for fulfilling and embracing the University’s mission and the law school’s vision. Electronic applications are preferred and should be e-mailed to the chair of the faculty hiring committee, Professor Richard Bowser, at email@example.com.
