For those of you going through the FAR conference this Fall or thinking about it in the near future, here is information on the upcoming Arizona State Aspiring Law Professors Conference. I'll be there!
Aspiring Law Professors Conference
Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU
On Saturday September 28, 2013 ASU will be hosting its 5th annual Aspiring Law Professors’ Conference. The conference website has more information but the conference is:
Designed for Visiting Assistant Professors, Fellows and others who plan to go on the academic teaching market,
but valuable to anyone considering a career as a law professor.
- Learn to succeed in the entry-level law
- Obtain an insider’s perspective on the
appointments process from faculty with extensive hiring experience
- Those going on the market this year may participate
in a mock interview and/or mock job talk and gain feedback from experienced
Delivering this year’s keynote address is Christine Hurt, Illinois law professor, Co-Director of the Program in Business Law & Policy, and well-known contributor to The Conglomerate blog. Also in attendance will be the Deans of ASU and UofA as well as number of faculty from other institutions who participated in prior years of the conference.
The Aspiring Law Professors’ Conference is being offered free of charge to all attendees and will take most of the day on the 28th. We have reserved some hotel rooms—but space is limited so please register soon! And, for former attendees who are now teaching, please email Doug Sylvester (firstname.lastname@example.org)—we are interested in hearing your stories and, if you are interested, having you come and help educate the next generation of potential scholars.
