Coronavirus Information and Update: Fall 2021 Plans

Faculty Appointments Committee

Student Representatives Lexie Slotterback and Clarens Emrich. In any year when the law school is hiring new faculty, the committee reviews applications, determines who will be interviewed at the annual AALS hiring conference in Washington DC (held in Oct/Nov), interviews candidates in DC, determines who will be invited back to the law school for full interviews and job talks, and recommends to the full faculty those candidates it feels should be considered for offers of employment. Students participate fully in the review of applications; one of the two travels to Washington DC for the interviews; and both are responsible for ensuring student attendance at job talks and student interview sessions. Students participate in all discussion and votes on who to interview and who to recommend to the faculty for hiring. This committee is most active in the Fall, with some work continuing into the early part of the Spring semester.
