The University of Mississippi School of Law is looking to fill several faculty positions as we have multiple curricular needs. The University of Mississippi School of Law is the state’s flagship law school. It boasts acclaimed clinics (including the George C. Cochran Innocence Project and the Roderick and Solange MacArthur Justice Clinic); the nation’s only ABA-accredited concentration in Air and Space Law (among other concentrations); a number of championship moot court teams; and the highly-ranked Business Law Institute – all on one of the country’s most beautiful campuses. The Law School is also committed to enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion and recently passed a strategic plan dedicated to DEI issues.
The University of Mississippi School of Law invites applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for multiple tenure-track faculty positions beginning August 2022. We welcome applications from outstanding candidates in all curricular areas, including (in no particular order) tax, employment law, health care law, disability rights, voting rights, real estate law, data privacy, civil procedure, bankruptcy, and business law (including foundational classes such as corporations and secured transactions). All applicants should have a distinguished academic background, and either great promise or a record of excellence in both scholarship and teaching. Located among the rolling hills of Northern Mississippi, the University of Mississippi’s main campus is centered in Oxford, Miss., about 70 miles south of Memphis, Tenn. Oxford has been listed among the 20 Best Small Towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine. Oxford boasts great independent bookstores, excellent restaurants, and a vibrant arts community and is home to one of the best public school districts in the state of Mississippi. The University of Mississippi encourages applications from candidates who would enhance the diversity of our community, including women and other gender identities, minorities, and LGBTQ+ candidates. As stated in our recently adopted strategic plan on diversity, equity, and inclusion: “The University of Mississippi School of Law is committed to creating an educational experience that affirms diversity, inclusion, and equity. We welcome the contributions of a diverse student body, faculty, and staff. Diversity, inclusion, and equity are vital to the education of our students and to the role we play in shaping the legal profession.” To read more about the University of Mississippi School of Law’s Diversity, Inclusion and Equity plan please visit the following link: https://law.olemiss.edu/about/diversity/strategic-plan-for-diversity-inclusion-and-equity/.
