Job Description

Instructor/Assistant Professor, Legal Studies
Anne Arundel Community College

Position Summary:

A strong candidate should have proven ability to teach college-level legal-based courses, and experience with a wide range of legal-specific computer applications is highly preferred. The Legal Studies Institute seeks a faculty member that has a fundamental understanding of recent and future trends for the Paralegal field. Additionally, excellence in oral, written and interpersonal communication skills is required. Teaching assignments are for 15 faculty load hours per semester and include courses in Legal Research and Writing and Introduction to Paralegal Studies. In addition to instructional responsibilities, the faculty member will have a role in curriculum development, assessment strategies, outcomes measurement, special events, partnerships, and academic advising.

Job Duties and Responsibilities:


With meeting community needs and improving teaching and learning among Anne Arundel Community College’s highest priorities, we are strategically positioned to set and surpass new standards of excellence in our primary teaching and learning mission. Guided by principles that emphasize equity and student success, especially in learning, and continuous improvement for a progressive and vital learning community, we envision AACC as a premier learning organization that is in the vanguard of community college education. As a consequence, we welcome qualified faculty candidates who

  • integrate learning outcomes assessment techniques in their instructional planning, curriculum design, and teaching activities

  • deliver instruction in a variety of formats
  • understand and apply learning organization theory

  1. Creating experiential learning opportunities and assessment techniques, (e.g., work-based and service learning; portfolio assessment, including developing and evaluating learning portfolios; etc.)
  2. Mentoring
    • students from target groups
    • new full-time faculty
    • part-time faculty
  3. Designing, formatting and delivering curriculum for synchronous and asynchronous learning
  4. Training and consulting for workforce initiatives (e.g., for public and corporate partners, etc.)
  5. Developing and implementing community education and extended learning programs
  6. Partnering with colleagues to enhance services to students and the community
    • recruiting and marketing
    • advising with expanded responsibilities
    • devising retention strategies and activities
  7. Strengthening relations and collaborative activities with K-12 and baccalaureate-granting colleagues
