The Association of American Law Schools maintains these pages to facilitate the Faculty Recruiting Conference, at which entry-level candidates meet with law school appointments committees each fall. An older, but still relevant, article providing advice on legal teaching is also included.
The Institute for Law School Teaching is a center at Gonzaga University School of Law that focuses on the teaching, as opposed to scholarship, aspect of legal education. While there are no “nuts and bolts” tips on getting a faculty position. This is an interesting site as it highlights the classroom side of legal education.
Professor Brad Wendel at Washington and Lee University School of Law covers the nuts and bolts of pursuing tenure-track positions and discusses clinical, adjunct and legal writing positions as well.
