    Job Description

    Job Title: Law School Faculty Open Rank (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor)

    Job ID: 4709

    Location: CUNY School of Law

    Regular/Temporary: Regular

    GENERAL DUTIES

Teaching responsibilities may include supervision of students in legal practice or other law-related activity. Shares responsibility for committee and department assignments, performing administrative, supervisory, and other functions as may be assigned.

    CAMPUS SPECIFIC INFORMATION

    The City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law seeks two highly qualified candidates for tenure-track appointments. Areas of particular interest include Civil Practice; Corporate and Commercial Law (with attention to the public sector and a range of regulatory arrangements); and Lawyering.

    CUNY School of Law is a national leader in progressive legal education with a dual mission of providing access to the profession for historically underrepresented communities, and of graduating public interest/public service attorneys. In the spring of 2007, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, in a national study of legal education, lauded CUNY School of Law's innovative curriculum, which has become a model for law schools across the nation. CUNY School of Law brings together the highest caliber of clinical training with traditional doctrinal legal education to create lawyers prepared to serve the public interest. As part of its mission, the law school prepares students to practice "Law in the Service of Human Needs."

    Appointment to the CUNY faculty comes at an important time in the history of our unique public service institution. Beginning in Fall 2012, the law school will occupy a LEED Gold certified new facility centrally located at Two Court Square in Long Island City, Queens. The new building has direct access to multiple New York City subway and bus lines, is convenient to regional commuter railroads, and is easily accessed by local highways. The new location puts the law school at the heart of the nation's public interest community in the most diverse city in the country, and affords opportunities to enhance

    instructional and public service activities for the law school.

    The basic premise of the Law School's program is that theory cannot be separated from practice, abstract knowledge of doctrine from practical skill, and understanding the professional role from professional experience. The curriculum integrates practical experience, professional responsibility, and lawyering skills with doctrinal study at every level. Forming the core of the lawyering curriculum are the skills recognized by the profession as essential to successful law practice: problem solving; legal analysis and reasoning; communication and rhetoric (legal writing, oral argument); legal research; factual investigation; counseling; negotiation; strategic analysis; litigation and alternative dispute-resolution; organization and management of legal work; and recognizing and resolving ethical dilemmas.

    Layered onto the traditional foundation of doctrinal education is a deep and broad clinical training program. First-year students acquire clinical experience through simulation exercises conducted in a required year-long Lawyering seminar; second-year students take an advanced one-semester Lawyering seminar in a public interest law area of their choice involving an expanded array of professional roles including advocate, mediator, transactional lawyer, and judge; third-year students earn 12-16 credits in either a Concentration, a unique seminar and field placement program, or a live-client clinic  onsite at the Law School in such fields as community economic development, criminal defense, elder law, international women's human rights, immigration, and mediation.

    The curriculum rejects the traditional separation of law courses into narrowly defined subjects. Precisely because attorneys are seldom presented with legal problems neatly compartmentalized into analytically distinct subject headings, the curriculum teaches students to think critically about subject matter, rule application, and procedures, and to synthesize these aspects critically. Thus, our graduates are able to address the many-sided problems that confront attorneys and their clients in real life.

    This position may include evening and weekend hours.

    MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

    For Law School Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor:

    A J.D., L.L.B., or Ph.D. in a law-related discipline required. Also required is demonstrated or promised evidence of significant success as a faculty member, interest in productive scholarship, legal work, or law-related work, and the ability to teach successfully and to cooperate with others for the good of the institution.

    OTHER QUALIFICATIONS

    We seek a creative educator with a strong and demonstrable commitment to social justice and to working with diverse communities, and who brings pedagogical insights to the design of programs to educate the next generation of public interest lawyers. Significant experience in public interest practice, teaching legal writing, supervising or training new lawyers, or law school teaching preferred. Faculty members are expected to achieve excellence in scholarship, teaching, and service to the school and wider communities. A record of scholarship or evidence of the ability to produce scholarship is preferred. Applicant must have the ability to meet the responsibilities of this tenure-track position.

    COMPENSATION

    Commensurate with experience.

    BENEFITS

    CUNY offers a comprehensive benefits package to employees and eligible dependents based on job title and classification. Employees are also offered pension and Tax-Deferred Savings Plans. Part-time employees must meet a weekly or semester work hour criteria to be eligible for health benefits. Health benefits are also extended to retirees who meet the eligibility criteria.
