    Law Instructor
    The Law School seeks applicants with a demonstrated commitment to our social justice mission for a full-time teaching position. The Law School Instructor hired in this cycle will primarily teach First-Year Lawyering Seminar, the foundational course in CUNY School of Law's nationally recognized lawyering curriculum, with particular focus on the training development of public interest/public service lawyers. Spanning all three years of law school, the Law School's lawyering curriculum was hailed by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in its 2007 Report, Educating Lawyers:
    Preparation for the Profession of Law. CUNY Law innovatively and successfully integrates students learning of practical skills and the ethical demands of professional identity with their learning of legal theory and doctrine. The Law School's First-Year Lawyering Seminar teaches legal analysis, legal writing, professional responsibility, and other lawyering skills by integrating clinical methodology with substantive, theoretical, and doctrinal material. Using simulation exercises and hypothetical cases, students role-play lawyers, clients, judges, and/or legislators confronted by legal issues arising from material in their other first-year courses. The Lawyering Seminar focuses on the ways in which lawyers work and think in various areas of practice, with a focus on public interest law. Students develop their analytic skills by writing and revising legal documents on which they receive feedback and critiques. They also acquire new qualitative skills, such as active listening, collaborative problem solving and
    decision-making, self-evaluation, and ethical reasoning. Students are encouraged to develop critical awareness of the social, legal, philosophical, political, and psychological content of their work. The Law School views these perspectives as central to a future lawyer's understanding of his/her status and role, including the mandates and aspirations of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct. Second-Year
    Lawyering Seminar and required clinical courses in the third-year build on the skills learned in the first year. The Instructor may, in accordance with the law school's needs, teach additional lawyering seminars, a doctrinal course, and/or provide academic skill instruction or other program support. This position is full-time and the instructor will be expected to teach and/or assist with the design and development of curriculum materials during the summer. The Law School Instructor will be responsible
    for committee work and such administrative, supervisory, and other functions as assigned. In their first two years of service, Law School Instructors may opt into participating in faculty meetings, pursuant to the CUNY School of Law Governance Plan. Instructors may assume other faculty governance responsibilities and serve on committees as appointed by the Dean or Committee on Committees. Upon
    reappointment for three or more years of continuous service, Law School Instructors may participate in governance activities without an annual opt-in process. Law School Instructors will perform other related duties as necessary or as directed by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. This position may include weekend and evening hours.

                UST Law seeks a distinguished legal scholar or member of the legal profession who has a commitment to academic excellence; a strong affinity for the school’s mission; an ability to articulate an inspiring vision for the school’s future; and demonstrated qualities of leadership, administration, and judgment, and the skills relevant to fundraising and to building relationships with the law school’s constituencies.  The Dean holds the Ryan Chair in Law.
