JOB LISTING: McGill University Faculty of Law

The following job listing might be of interest:

Faculty of Law
Entry-Level Tenure-Track Professorship Position in Law

Applications are currently invited for one or more entry-level tenure-track professorship positions at the Faculty of Law, McGill University.


The Faculty of Law at McGill University was established in 1848. Through its research programs and pedagogical initiatives, it reflects a central commitment to the study of legal traditions, comparative law and the internationalization of law. In conjunction with this overarching mission for the study of law at McGill University, four areas of academic priority have been identified by the Faculty: Transsystemic Legal Education; Trade, Mobility and Enterprise; Public Policy and Private Resources; and Human Rights and Legal Pluralism.


The Faculty of Law is offering one or more entry level, tenure-track professorships in Law and invites applications from candidates with a strong commitment to innovation and excellence in teaching and research, and who will make a creative contribution to the governance of the Faculty and the University. These appointments are expected to start either on January 1 or July 1, 2011.

Candidates with demonstrated expertise in fundamental private law, international trade law or civil procedure and dispute resolution are particularly encouraged to apply.


Candidates must envisage teaching and research in several substantive fields of law and we encourage diverse approaches to law, legal research and legal education. Given the competitive nature of the applicant pool, candidates without a doctoral degree are unlikely to be considered. The bilingual environment of our Faculty requires that successful candidates be able to evaluate written and oral work presented in both English and French.


Applications, including a detailed cover letter, a curriculum vitae, up to three samples of published research and the names and addresses of three referees, are now being accepted for this competition and must be submitted no later than September 15, 2010. Applications should be addressed to:
