Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law seeks three qualified individuals to serve as Visiting Assistant Professors of Law during 2017-18 academic year. We encourage persons with strong academic records and the potential for outstanding teaching and scholarship to apply. Although not limited to these subject matters, candidates must be willing to teach in one of the following areas: Criminal Law, Law and Economics, and Legal Writing.

The successful candidates will enjoy many benefits of a top-notch law faculty. Our visiting assistant professors (VAPs) will teach one course per semester, allowing ample time for scholarship. VAPs also are invited to attend faculty meetings, participate in faculty workshops, and are given opportunities to engage in mock job talks, mock job interviews, and scholarship reviews. Alumni of our VAP program have gone on to hold tenure-track appointments at other esteemed law schools, including the University of Florida, Washington and Lee University, University of Alabama, and Temple University.

These positions are 10-month, terminal visiting positions beginning in the summer of 2017. Salary is commensurate with experience and VAPs receive health and dental benefits.

Villanova is a Catholic university sponsored by the Augustinian order. Diversity and inclusion have been and will continue to be an integral component of Villanova University's mission.
