Job Description


Washington & Lee School of Law invites applications for the position of Professor of Practice.  This member of our full-time faculty will be one of three professors who constitute the Legal Writing Program at W&L Law.  Responsibilities of the position include teaching two sections of first-year legal writing each semester while working collaboratively with other faculty in program to maintain a modern curriculum in this subject matter.   

In addition to holding a Juris Doctor degree from an ABA-accredited school, candidates for the position must have at least two to three years of post-J.D. experience in a position or positions requiring substantial legal writing.  We seek in particular candidates who are enthused about working closely with students in the development of this critical skill. 

The Professor of Practice position is a nine-month contractual position with teaching responsibilities beginning annually in mid-August and ending in mid-May.  The initial appointment to the position will be for a two-year term, with eligibility for a longer-term appointment thereafter.  The anticipated starting salary for the nine-month position is $80,000.      

Washington and Lee University School of Law is an Equal Opportunity employer that adheres to a robust nondiscrimination policy.  Our school has a firm commitment to enhancing the diversity of our community and, in that regard, we welcome candidates who are members of communities traditionally under-represented in the legal profession and academia.

Application Instructions

Interested individuals should submit a statement of interest, C.V., and references through the Interfolio portal.
