From an email that I received earlier today (and which I have edited, in part, solely for brevity):
Stetson University College of Law invites applications for three positions:
1. Experienced litigator/teacher/coach to lead its award-winning trial advocacy program. This is a full-time programmatic tenured/tenure-track faculty position. The successful candidate will coordinate and oversee all trial competition programs, preparing a budget, selecting and training trial team members, coaching at least one team per semester, and recruiting and training coaches for additional teams. Teaching responsibilities may include L.LM. online classes, trial advocacy, and upper-level skills courses. This position requires actual trial experience as well as a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school and licensed membership in good standing in at least one U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants with experience coaching or teaching in established trial advocacy programs will receive special preference.
2. Full-time Director of its Veterans Advocacy Clinic. Applicants should be admitted to the Bars of Florida, the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Experience with veterans benefits issues, military service, and clinical or other teaching is strongly preferred. The Veterans Advocacy Clinic represents veterans appealing adverse benefits decisions of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The clinic also coordinates a pro bono initiative, promotes policy and scholarship advances, and assists student veterans. The Director is responsible for every aspect of the clinic’s legal work, supervises and teaches students, and cultivates a flow of cases appropriate for student representation. Additional teaching responsibilities will commence after one year. Alternative structures for this position may be considered for outstanding candidates. This is a full-time programmatic tenured/tenure-track faculty position.
3. Bruce R. Jacob Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) for Fall 2014 through Spring 2016. The VAP program is designed for individuals who seek the opportunity to enter academia by gaining full-time teaching experience and developing their scholarly agendas. Jacob VAPs normally serve two years. In the first year the VAP will teach one course per semester and in the second year the VAP will have a regular teaching load. She or he will be eligible to apply for a research grant and will be expected to produce at least one significant piece of scholarship. We provide our VAPs with considerable assistance in developing their academic careers, including mentoring, research assistants, and a professional travel budget. Compensation is competitive with similar VAP positions and may include health, housing, and other benefits, as well. We welcome applications from candidates interested in any curricular area, but we are particular interested in teacher/scholars focusing on commercial and business law.
Stetson’s beautiful campuses are located in Florida’s Tampa Bay region, the nation’s nineteenth largest metropolitan area. Stetson is nationally known for its programs in Advocacy, Legal Writing, Elder Law, and Higher Education Law. Interested applicants should visit our website at http://www.law.stetson.edu. Stetson encourages applications from those who will contribute to its diverse cultural and intellectual environment. Applicants should have a strong academic record and demonstrated commitment to outstanding teaching, scholarship, and service.
Application review will begin in August and will continue until the position is filled. Interviews will occur in Washington, D.C. during the AALS 2013 Faculty Recruitment Conference. Other interview arrangements and/or alternative structure for these positions may be made for exceptional candidates.
