Job Summary

THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY COLLEGE OF LAW invites applications for three, entry-level, tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning in the Fall of 2020. The College is seeking to fill needs in almost any area of law. Some key areas include Business Associations, Civil Procedure, Contracts, Family Law, Property, Securities Regulation, and Trusts and Estates. However, we are also interested in considering candidates who teach and/or research in other areas that are not included in this sample list of priorities. The College of Law is an important part of a major research university and offers a collegial and supportive atmosphere for its faculty, staff, and students. Applicants should have a J.D. or equivalent law degree, a record of high academic achievement, and a demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and in scholarly productivity. Salary for this position will be commensurate with experience.

To be considered, applicants must apply through the University of Kentuckys Integrated Employment System. There are three Assistant Professor postings open within the College of Law for Fall 2020. Applicants for this position are highly encouraged to apply to all three postings (listed under requisition numbers FE01978, FE01981 and FE02006). These positions are identical and per University policy, an application must be submitted for each individual job in order to be considered for hire.

Please include a CV and cover letter along with application. Please also include contact information for at least three references when prompted in the application. This information may be utilized to solicit recommendation letters from your references within the employment system. Applications will be reviewed and accepted until the position is filled.

If you have questions concerning the position, please contact Jennifer Bird-Pollan, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, via email at jbirdpollan@uky.edu.
