Adjunct Faculty Positions

Our need for adjunct (or part-time) faculty varies greatly from year to year and is largely dependent on curricular needs in our academic program. Therefore, adjunct (or part-time) faculty positions in general remain on continuous recruitment. You may apply at any time by following the instructions on the How To Apply page. Decisions on the hiring of adjunct faculty are typically made six to nine months before the start of the semester in which the individual would be assigned to teach. In addition, most adjunct faculty members teach in our skills curriculum (e.g., Trial Advocacy and Pre-Trial Practice). We generally do not create new courses for an adjunct faculty member and adjunct faculty members do not teach in any required courses (First-year curriculum, Evidence, Professional Responsibility, and Agency). To review current course offerings, see our catalog.
