About the Opportunity

About Northeastern:

Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the confines of discipline, degree, and campus.

Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.

Northeastern's comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.

About the Opportunity:

The School of Law at Northeastern University seeks applicants for a visiting position during the 2022-23 and 2023-24 academic year. Course assignment will include running the Domestic Violence Institute and teaching the related seminar in the Spring 2023 semester, Fall 2023 semester and/or Spring 2024 semester. This is either a half-year or full-year academic appointment. Other teaching assignments will be agreed upon with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

A Visiting Clinical Professor is a temporary non-tenure-track appointment given to faculty with special skills to complement the law school curriculum. The appointee will usually be on leave or be retired from a full-time faculty position at another University, but other applicants are welcome to apply. Benefits-eligibility will be determined by the length of the appointment and whether the individual remains a full-time employee at their current institution.


The Visiting Professor is responsible for teaching and service.


Applicants must hold a terminal degree in a field related to law (e.g., JD, LLB, or a comparable foreign equivalent) from an accredited institution by the appointment start date. Applicants must have demonstrated potential for outstanding teaching and scholarly achievement.
