Seattle University School of Law invites applications and nominations for visiting faculty for the 2021-22 academic year. The School of Law seeks two to three visiting professors to teach first year courses during the 2021-2022 academic year. Both one semester and full academic-year visits are possibilities.
We welcome candidates with the experience or expertise to teach all first-year subjects and are particularly interested in candidates who can teach Civil Procedure, Criminal Law, Torts, or Contracts. Depending on the length of the visit and our evolving needs, visitors may also be able to teach upper-level courses including, but not limited to, Criminal Procedure, Family Law, Environmental Law, and Trusts and Estates. As our mode of teaching for next year remains undecided, candidates should be available and willing to teach in-person under appropriate health and safety protocols but should also be comfortable with remote instruction. We encourage applications from candidates who contribute to the diversity of our faculty and who are interested in contributing to our collective scholarly conversation.
Seattle University School of Law is committed to preparing great lawyers and leaders who make a difference for their clients and communities. We proudly and consistently attract the most diverse student body of any law school in the Pacific Northwest region (40% students of color in this year’s 1L class). Our commitment to academic distinction is grounded in our Jesuit Catholic tradition, one that encourages open inquiry, thoughtful reflection, and concern for personal growth.
