The University of Richmond School of Law seeks to hire an Applied Linguistics Specialist for a non-tenure track, half-time, faculty term appointment. The appointment will run August 1, 2018 to May 15, 2019.

Each year, the University of Richmond School of Law enrolls 10-30 international students in its J.D. and LL.M. programs.

The role of the Applied Linguistics Specialist is to assist these students in developing more effective written and oral English language communications skills. The Applied Linguistics Specialist will work with law faculty to develop and co-teach curricular modules in Legal English as well as provide feedback on students written projects. The Applied Linguistics Specialist will also provide one-on-one and small group tutoring and will assist in assessing the English language ability of applicants.
