    THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS, FAYETTEVILLE, SCHOOL OF LAW seeks to fill one or more tenured or tenure-track positions for the 2012–2013 academic year.

    Our primary curricular need is for a programmatic tenured or tenure-track position in the legal clinic. The legal clinic is an in-house, live client clinic which enables student attorneys to provide legal assistance to indigents, governmental agencies and charitable organizations. The professor will teach traditional civil clinical classes, but the position is also likely to involve administrative responsibilities. The extent and nature of those duties will be determined by the credentials and experience of the candidate.

    Candidates for the clinical position should have a distinguished academic record and significant practice or equivalent experience. Preferred qualifications include two or more years of experience as a clinical teacher. Applicants must also be eligible to supervise students under Rule XV of the Arkansas Rules Governing Bar Admission. Those rules require that the candidate either be, or become prior to the beginning of the appointment, a member of the Arkansas Bar. In the alternative, a lawyer not admitted to practice in Arkansas may supervise students for up to one year, providing the lawyer is admitted to practice and is in good standing in another state, and has had at least five years of practice in another state.

    We also welcome applications from candidates interested in teaching first year and required courses, or other subjects depending on future needs. We have a special interest in attracting applicants who are eager to integrate lawyering skills opportunities into their doctrinal courses and to develop related lawyering skills courses.

    Applicants should submit a letter of application indicating teaching and scholarly interests, and attach a current resume or curriculum vitae together with three professional references to Mary Beth Matthews, Appointments Committee Chair, WH 313 University of Arkansas School of Law, Fayetteville AR 72701. Applications may also be submitted by email to mmatthew@uark.edu.

    The University of Arkansas is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Institution committed to achieving a culturally diverse faculty. We encourage applications from all qualified candidates, especially individuals who contribute to the social, ethnic, and gender diversity of our faculty and academic community. Applications will be accepted without regard to age, race, color, sex, sexual orientation or national origin. Applicants must have proof of legal authority to work in the United States.
