Job Details

Rutgers Law School is hiring an Assistant Dean of New Programs

About Rutgers Law School (RLS)

Two schools, each with distinctive strengths, have come together to create one law school with extraordinary opportunities for learning experiences and career growth. With locations in Camden and Newark—RLS offers a world-class faculty; a curriculum of exceptional breadth and depth in theory, practice, and interdisciplinary studies; a geographic presence that spans one of the nation’s 10 largest legal markets (New Jersey) while also offering immediate access to two of the five largest markets (New York City and Philadelphia); an alumni network with over 20,000 members; and a strong tradition of diversity and social impact. As the law school for a top public university, RLS is committed to the highest standards of teaching, scholarship, and service to its host communities, the state of New Jersey, and the nation.

About the Position

This is a newly created position at RLS. The goal of this position is to identify, create, and administer revenue-generating programs for RLS outside of the traditional, domestic JD program. That revenue might come from new topic-specific certificate or micro-credential programs, executive education, international programming, and/or other classes that are attractive to lawyers and/or non-lawyers. 
This person will be responsible for thinking strategically about what opportunities exist given the current landscape of other revenue-generating programs, market demand, and capacity within and without the law school to deliver the programs. This person will work with the administration and with the faculty to determine which programs should be developed, what capacity the law school has to staff the programs, and what makes sense for the RLS brand. This person will coordinate with, but will not be responsible for, Continuing Legal Education programs, or with activities of the various Centers at Rutgers Law School. 
In addition to identifying and developing these new, revenue-generating programs, this person will be responsible for staffing and administering the programs. This includes identifying potential teachers, marketing, managing admissions, helping develop the curriculum (potentially in conjunction with relevant faculty), supervising the teachers, working with university and law school administrators to ensure optimal registration, and other day-to-day operations. Additionally, the Assistant Dean will have to identify and obtain authority to grant certificates or other credentials (if part of the program) from the university and any relevant accreditors. 
To the extent that this person identifies foreign programs as a relevant target, the person will work closely with leadership, staff, and the faculty, in particular the Non-JD and Foreign Programs Committee that supports faculty governance in this area, to advance the programmatic objectives of these initiatives and the overall mission of the Law School. 

Must work closely with relevant leadership, staff, faculty, the faculty Committees, and external stakeholders, including alumni/ae, employers.
