LINCOLN MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY DUNCAN SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for two full-time, tenure‑track faculty positions starting in the 2024-2025 academic year.
We welcome all subject areas, with particular interest in contracts and sales, business associations, criminal law and procedure, and evidence. Nonetheless, as we grow our innovative part-time/hybrid J.D. program, which is approximately two-thirds online, our needs extend across all doctrinal areas.
Requirements include a J.D. or equivalent law degree and an unwavering commitment to educating successful lawyers and leaders. The perfect candidate will embody collaborative effort, with an outstanding academic background and firm dedication to teaching, scholarship, and service. Practical legal experience and prior teaching are highly valued, although not mandatory. We are seeking candidates with the potential to grow into excellent legal educators and scholars.
This role will operate under a twelve-month contract, with teaching duties every alternate summer. Rest assured, we consider this schedule while formulating our scholarship requirements.
In line with our commitment to diversity, we strongly encourage applications from people of color, women, individuals with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ individuals, veterans, and others who can enhance our faculty, curricular, and program diversity through unique life experiences, viewpoints, or philosophies.
As faculty, your primary duty is teaching and mentoring students. We recognize this role's importance in accomplishing our mission: providing a top-notch legal education to address the needs of the underserved. Join us in shaping the future of the legal profession.
Our law school is located in the heart of Knoxville, Tennessee, a city that offers a fusion of vibrant city life, stunning natural beauty, and a rich historical and cultural scene, complemented by the backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains.
