Job Description

Campbell University School of Law seeks outstanding applicants for up to three, entry-level or lateral, full-time, tenured or tenure-track, faculty positions. We welcome candidates in all subject areas, with a particular interest in filling curricular needs in criminal procedure, criminal law, trial advocacy, business and commercial law, and with a secondary interest in jurisprudence, professional responsibility, civil litigation, and administrative law. The positions are nine-month academic appointments that will begin in August 2023, at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or full Professor.

Campbell Law is located in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, constantly ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States. Campbell Law is a demanding community of faculty and students whose aim, guided by transcendent values, is to develop lawyers who possess moral convictions and professional competence, and who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others and create a more just society. To that end, Campbell Law has adopted the following five distinctives: (1) we offer an academic program that is highly demanding; (2) we bring together the theoretical and practical to produce thoughtful and talented lawyers; (3) we utilize the talents of a faculty that is profoundly committed to students and teaching; (4) we view the practice of law as a calling to serve others; and (5) we offer a Christian perspective on law and justice, consistent with the Campbell University Mission Statement. Cover letters must explain how the candidate is able and willing to support each of the five distinctives.

Campbell Law welcomes applications from candidates whose backgrounds will contribute to excellence through institutional diversity. All applicants should have excellent academic credentials and outstanding teaching reviews, and the ability to work effectively and collegially with faculty, students, and colleagues. Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience. Direct questions to Professor Raluca Papadima, Chair of the Faculty Recruitment Committee ([email protected]).
