Preferred Subjects: Contracts, Business Organizations, Commercial Law (and other transactional law), Torts, Property, labor & employment, family law

Start Date:  August 2023

Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law invites individuals interested in serving in a Christian university environment to apply for a tenure-track professor of law position. The tenure-track faculty position is a nine-month appointment that will begin in August 2023 at the rank of Associate Professor.  

Required qualifications include outstanding academic credentials, including a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school or equivalent degree and demonstrated experience in a relevant subject matter. Qualified applicants must be in at least year three of teaching in a tenure-track role at an ABA-accredited law school, and have a demonstrated record of publication and research agenda.

Applicants with demonstrated expertise in business organizations, contracts, commercial law (and other areas of transactional law), labor & employment law, torts law, property law, environmental law, family law, civil rights/race and the law, negotiation and mediation, and professional responsibility are especially encouraged to apply. 

Cumberland School of Law prides itself on its commitment to teaching and to ensuring not only the success of its students upon graduation but their recognition of the ethical obligations that flow from being an officer of the court and a servant of the community.  The ideal candidate will thus demonstrate the ability and motivation to develop meaningful mentoring relationships with students both in and out of class.

The University is dedicated to the promotion of rigorous academic inquiry in a Christian setting. The University seeks and prefers employee applicants of the Christian faith and offers competitive salaries with a generous benefits package.

Review of applications will begin September 2, 2022, and applications will be accepted until October 15, 2022. Application materials should include a letter of interest, curriculum vita, application for faculty position and the faculty applicant Christian Mission statement. Salary is dependent upon qualifications and experience.  The successful candidate must pass a background check. Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States, as Samford will not sponsor any employment visas for this position.
