Introduction & General Information on the Legal Academy

Introduction

This guide is designed to help students and alumni who are considering careers in academia, as well as those who are already making the transition to teaching positions. We have included background resources about the legal academy, as well as resources that deal with the hiring process and diversity issues. New and aspiring law professors can also find sources which discuss different approaches to legal scholarship and teaching, and experienced professors can find resources for revisiting teaching methods. Finally, we have listed major journals that can be consulted for further research on the subject.
