Roger Williams University School of Law expects to make at least two entry level or lateral tenured or tenure-track appointments this year. RWU Law is the only law school in Rhode Island and is part of a well-connected teaching and scholarly community that is strongly supported by the bench and bar of the state and region.
This year we are excited to have the opportunity to significantly increase the size of our faculty. We welcome applications from candidates across all areas of law, although we are particularly interested in the following fields: property law, torts, criminal law, race and the law, commercial and business law, tax, and wills and trusts. RWU Law, along with the university leadership, is also launching interdisciplinary Centers of Excellence in Marine & Maritime Affairs and in Property Law, and our new faculty members will have the opportunity to participate in center programming that supports their scholarship, teaching, and service.
RWU Law embraces diversity among the faculty as well as diversity and inclusion work in the curriculum. RWU Law is especially interested in candidates who will add to the diversity of our faculty and community and serve as champions for the law school's strategic plan for diversity and inclusion. We encourage applications from people of color and other underrepresented groups, women, LGBTQI+ individuals, people with disabilities, and other candidates who will enrich the diversity of our institution.
At the University's discretion, the education and experience prerequisites may be excepted where the candidate can demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the University, an equivalent combination of education and experience specifically preparing the candidate for success in the position.
