Faculty Positions

Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon invites applications from candidates for several positions to begin in the 2023-24 academic year. These positions will remain open until filled. We primarily seek candidates to teach property, torts, contracts, commercial law, copyright and other IP classes, employment law and related classes, health law, and lawyering/legal writing. Candidates with interests in constitutional law, criminal law, and wills & trusts may also receive consideration.

We will begin screening interviews in September, and campus callbacks will take place shortly thereafter. Applicants who receive an offer will have two weeks to consider the offer. In some cases, an applicant may need to make a decision before other law schools have completed callbacks. Applicants should have serious interest in Lewis & Clark Law School and living in the Pacific Northwest.

Interested persons should send a c.v., references, a writing sample, a diversity statement and an indication of specific teaching interests to Kerry Rowand, Executive Assistant to the Dean, at lawfacultyhire@lclark.edu. More information about the law school can be found at https://law.lclark.edu/.

In addition to full time faculty positions, we also hire attorneys from the greater Portland area to serve as adjunct professors on a class-by-class basis. We welcome expressions of interest, including proposals for new classes, and we especially welcome inquiries from attorneys with the potential to contribute to the diversity of the law school community. If you are interested in finding out about adjunct teaching opportunities, please contact Professor John Parry, Associate Dean of Faculty, at parry@lclark.edu. Please include your name, current position, contact information, areas of expertise and teaching interest, teaching experience (if any), and any other information that you think could be useful.
