From an email that I received earlier today:
The University of Montana invites applications
and nominations for a Dean to lead its School of Law as it begins the
second century of its distinguished history. Founded in 1912, the
School of Law is an established leader in legal education, preparing
students for serving people in the practice of law through effective
integration of theory and practice. Beyond preparing students for
practice, our curriculum emphasizes areas of law significant to the
Rocky Mountain West including natural resource
law, environmental law, and Indian law. At a challenging time for
legal education, the success of Montana’s model in training and
placing lawyers has earned it recognition as one of the best-value law
schools in the nation. Montana is one of a handful of law schools to
attract significantly more applicants this year than last.
The successful candidate must hold a Juris Doctor degree, or its equivalent, from an ABA-accredited law school, demonstrate the ability to lead the School of Law’s faculty, staff, and students, and have the following additional qualifications:
- Distinguished professional achievement in legal practice;
- Successful administrative experience, including personnel supervision and financial administration;
- Strong listening, communication, and consensus-building skills;
- A commitment to legal scholarship; and
- A commitment to diversity.
TO APPLY: Visit http://umjobs.silkroad.com/ to view full description and apply online. Candidates will be asked to upload: a statement of interest; a current resume or C.V.; and contact information for at least three professional references. Review of applications will begin on August 1, 2013; application review will continue until the position is filled.
