Posted 3 years ago

Adjunct Professor (Spring Semester 2021)

Mitchell Hamline School of Law—a leader in pedagogical innovation dedicated to expanding access to high-quality legal education—seeks adjunct professors to teach the following courses in Spring 2021:

We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and seek candidates who can contribute to the diversity of our campus community and wish to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion through teaching, service, and scholarship. All spring semester teaching will likely be online.

Candidates must have a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school or foreign equivalent degree. We encourage those who attended HBCU law schools or undergraduate institutions, as well as other institutions that have historically graduated substantial diverse student populations to apply. We value collaborative, institution-minded colleagues with practice experience, community engagement experience, and a passion for teaching.

Our law school is in an historic area of Saint Paul, on the Indigenous homelands of the Dakota Oyate, home to the Penumbra and Fitzgerald theaters, ethnic restaurants, and one of the finest chamber orchestras in the world. Just across the river, Minneapolis is the home to the Walker Art Center, First Avenue, the Guthrie Theater, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and one of the nation’s liveliest performing arts scenes. The city was the birthplace of the American Indian Movement and continues to boast one of the largest urban Indian populations in the country. Eleven federally recognized tribes, including four Dakota and seven Ojibwe tribes, remain within the State of Minnesota.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul are among the top cities for the arts and entertainment, sports, biking, cross-country skiing, active lifestyles, non-profit organizations, and exceptionally high levels of volunteer engagement.

Candidates should submit: (1) a resume; and (2) a cover letter that discusses their interest in the position, including which of the listed courses they wish to teach. The committee will consider applications until the positions are filled, but candidates should submit application materials before October 12, 2020, for full consideration. Members of diverse and underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
