Georgia State University College of Law currently seeks qualified candidates for two Lecturer positions in its Lawyering: Foundations program. Applications are invited from individuals who have the expertise to contribute fully at the lecturer level in support of our first-year required legal writing program.

Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from a nationally-accredited college, the first professional degree in law from a nationally-accredited American law school, and a specific interest in teaching legal writing and analysis at an institution committed to both day and evening educational opportunities.

Candidates with several years of legal practice experience are preferred. Although teaching experience is not required, the successful candidate should be prepared to undertake full teaching duties including lecturing, facilitating writing workshop exercises, and providing corrective feedback on weekly homework assignments, letters, memos, and briefs. Lawyering: Foundations faculty work collaboratively from a uniform syllabus, but the successful candidate is encouraged and expected to contribute his or her own ideas, exercises, and innovative approaches to the legal writing classroom experience.

This is a non-tenure track appointment with presumptively renewable one-year contracts. Lecturers who have served full-time for the entire previous academic year have the presumption of reappointment for the subsequent academic year unless notified in writing to the contrary. Lecturers also have promotion opportunities to the senior lecturer and principal senior lecturer level. The period of appointment is ten months running from August to May. Compensation includes a contract salary commensurate with experience, plus a benefits package. This is a teaching appointment with a service requirement equivalent to one committee assignment. Neither research nor scholarship is required.

Applicants wishing to apply should register and apply at (the registration is free) and upload a résumé, cover letter, and writing sample. Cover letters should be directed to Lawyering: Foundations Director Margaret Hughes Vath, Chair of Lawyering: Foundations Faculty Search Committee, Georgia State University College of Law, P.O. Box 4037, Atlanta, Georgia 30302-4037. Applicants invited for interview will be required to submit three written letters of recommendation. For any questions related to the position, please contact Margaret Hughes Vath at

The application deadline is Friday, June 10, 2022. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. An offer of employment will be conditional on criminal and educational background verification. Part of a comprehensive research university, the College of Law is a dynamic urban-centered law school located in the heart of Atlanta with approximately 650 full- and part-time law students. We encourage applications from candidates who would diversify our faculty.
