University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law (McGeorge) invites applications from exceptional candidates for a visiting position for the fall and spring terms of the 2016-17 academic year – and possibly for a 2-year term. Specifically, we are looking for a visiting professor with a specialization in Civil Procedure. Important secondary needs include Evidence, Professional Responsibility, Constitutional Law, Torts, Wills and Trusts, and Community Property. Rank will be determined commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience.
The McGeorge faculty is accomplished and engaging. The law school is a wonderful community with friendly people, a vibrant intellectual culture, and a beautiful campus. Our programs in international law, advocacy and dispute resolution, and government lawyering are innovative and well known. Our location in Sacramento, the capital of California, offers the opportunity to be part of a robust legal and policy-making community. As a relatively small city by California standards, Sacramento also has a close knit legal community and a number of interesting residential neighborhoods, as well as a burgeoning arts and restaurant scene.
Qualifications include a record of academic excellence; substantial experience in civil procedure and at least one other of the secondary subject needs listed above; a passion for teaching; a deep commitment to scholarship; the ability to work effectively with diverse students and other constituents; and an enthusiasm for being part of an energetic, collegial, and committed faculty.
