Law schools would like to diversify their faculties. (In 2007-8, e.g., 45% of law professors were from just 10 schools.) To help become more inclusive, Southern Illinois University School of Law presents a workshop, focusing on the law school hiring process.
“Who Me? A Law Professor” will be presented Thursday, June 24, 6:30-8 pm, at the Hyatt Regency at the Arch(former Adams Mark) Hotel, at
315 Chestnut St. in St. Louis, Mills Studio 2, 4th floor.
Learn what is involved in becoming a law professor, what schools want in candidates, how to apply, and related topics. There will be time for questions as well. Come if you are interested or encourage someone else to come. This workshop is held during the Illinois State Bar Association meeting but you need not be a member nor register for the ISBA meeting to attend this workshop.
There is no fee for this workshop and there is no registration required. Questions, please contact Suzanne Schmitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We anticipate offering this workshop again in December during the ISBA winter meeting and will consider offering it to interested groups as well.
