University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law Seeks Distinguished Visiting Professor, 2011-12

The University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law seeks applications from renowned legal educators for a year-long appointment as the Ralph Petrilli Distinguished Visiting Professor for the 2011-12 academic term.  The Petrilli Distinguished Visiting Professor will teach a total of 3 classes.  One of these classes will be the year-long legal writing and analysis course in a small section of about 20 students.  [The legal writing and analysis course is entitled Basic Legal Skills.  It does not include legal research, which is taught in a separate course.  Given that it is a year-long course, the teaching package is the functional equivalent of a 4-course package.]  One course will be Professional Responsibility in an accelerated format in Fall 2011.  The third course, in Spring 2012, could include Domestic Relations (family law), an upper-level skills elective, or a seminar on a mutually agreeable topic.  The successful applicant must be a person "renowned for exceptional contributions to law, legal institutions or legal education."  To apply, please send a letter of interest and a c.v. to Professor Tony Arnold, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Faculty Development, Brandeis School of Law, Wyatt Hall, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY 40292 or tony.arnold@louisville.edu, no later than January 15, 2011.  Please contact Dean Arnold at his email address or at (502) 852-6388 with any questions.
