Presented by the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law
Friday, September 24, 2021
9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (PT)
The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law will host a virtual panel to discuss “Transforming the Legal Academy” on Friday, September 24, 2021. We invite law fellows, associates, researchers, law clerks, practitioners and others who are considering entering the higher education academic teaching market to attend. The conference will be hosted in a virtual format.
Participants will learn about the pathways (traditional, practice, LLM/VAP/fellowships) to becoming a law professor and the specific tracks (tenure, clinical, legal writing) to aid in doing so. Participants will also receive advice on how to interview for this profession and be a successful candidate. Learn how to set your research agenda and how to decide what to teach from current law school tenured professors from around the country.
