    Status:  Full Time Faculty Position

    Mitchell Hamline School of Law invites applications for Director of Legal Writing. The successful candidate will join a vibrant faculty in a growing school and will be responsible for the required first-year legal research and writing course, currently titled Lawyering: Advice and Persuasion. This is a full-time, year-round, faculty position and the successful candidate will be offered a presumptively renewable contractual position consistent with ABA standard 405(c).

(Blended learning programs include between 30% and 50% of instruction through distance learning.)

In addition, duties will include providing leadership to the program and teaching classes.
