Job Description

The Charleston School of Law welcomes applications to fill two full-time, tenure-track faculty positions. Ideal candidates will show commitment to becoming stellar teachers and passionate, enthusiastic colleagues, who are willing to invest considerable energy and effort in service and institution building by collaborating with the rest of the faculty to achieve excellence at the School of Law. We value candidates with practice experience who will bring the real world of lawyering to the classroom. We also value previous teaching experience, including as adjunct faculty, at a law school or college. However, completion of visiting assistant professor programs, fellowships, Ph.D. degrees, and LL.M. degrees are not pre-requisites. We are looking, instead, for a demonstrated ability to grow into the role of teacher and scholar. 

Charleston School of Law is an ABA fully-accredited institution reinvigorating the study of law by offering a rich, comprehensive three-year program rooted in excellence. Our campus is located in the Upper King Street district of historic downtown Charleston. The Law School was founded in 2003 with a mission to instill the values of public service and professionalism in its graduates. Key goals for the Law School are student success and providing opportunities to historically underrepresented groups in the profession. 

The Law School prides itself on having a talented and accessible faculty and staff. Princeton Review regularly ranks Charleston School of Law as a top institution for faculty accessibility, teaching quality, and resources for women. The School’s Faculty bring significant practice experience to the classroom and include former law firm partners, state and federal prosecutors, defense attorneys, corporate counsel, and military veterans. The Law School is dedicated to maintaining a diverse and inclusive community of students, faculty, and staff that fosters an appreciation for and understanding of people from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. 

The Law School is presently looking for candidates interested in teaching first-year courses as well as Wills, Trusts & Estates; Tax; Business Organizations; Professional Responsibility; and Constitutional Law. However, our curricular needs are flexible, and we welcome applications from all candidates whose teaching, service, or research interests will promote the School’s mission of excellent teaching, community service, diversity, and inclusion.

Applicants should submit:

  • a cover letter explaining the commitment to this mission
  • the subjects the applicant would be interested in teaching
  • a curriculum vitae
  • research agenda
  • and any teaching evaluations received
