Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) in Environmental Law at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University seeks applicants for a Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) in Environmental Law. The VAP in Environmental Law will hold a one-year appointment, renewable for a second one-year term. The appointment is designed to mentor and train future environmental law professors and prepare them for the law school teaching market. Pace defines environmental law broadly and welcomes candidates with interdisciplinary interests and approaches to environmental law.

The VAP will have a teaching load of one course per semester and the opportunity to focus on scholarly research and writing. The VAP will receive the same office and administrative support as other faculty members, is invited to participate fully in faculty activities, and will receive a small travel and research fund. Additionally, the VAP will present a work-in-progress at Pace Law’s Future Environmental Law Professors Workshop, receive feedback and mentoring from other scholars, and present a finished manuscript to the faculty at our weekly scholarly colloquium.

Candidates will be selected based on their prior work and educational experience, and teaching and scholarly potential. Pace is committed to achieving equal opportunity in all aspects of University life.  Applications are encouraged from people of color, individuals of varied sexual and affectional orientations, individuals who are differently-abled, veterans of the armed forces or national service, and anyone whose background and experience will contribute to the diversity of the law school.

Applicants should submit:

  • Cover letter (discussing qualifications and interests)
  • Curriculum Vitae (that lists three references and law school courses the candidate would be interested in teaching)
  • Law school transcript
  • One published scholarly article or an unpublished paper draft or prospectus that reflects the candidate’s scholarly interests and potential

Applications should be received by Friday, December 20, 2019, but will be considered thereafter until the position is filled.
